MDOC don't hurt the families sign now

Sir,

In all states in the US if there is an inmate in prison family have a way of getting medical information, or being told if the inmate becomes sick. There are two ways of doing this, one is the medical release form, the other is to hold medical power of attorney. Mississippi is different, there is NO way to get any medical information if an inmate becomes sick, or even critically ill. The medical power of attorney which is usually a very powerful document is worthless in Mississippi as the state simply over-rides it. A MDOC representative,stated even a state approved "Healthcare Power of Attorney" form is apparently not sufficient consent for someone to obtain healthcare information about an inmate. So, what can you do if you have an elderly or sick friend/relative in prison? The long and short of it is nothing, you must wait until the inmate themselves inform you...

We think this is crazy, and with cases like Jamie Scott realise this can't be allowed to go un-challenged. MDOC is known for digging it's heels in and we appreciate this is not going to be an easy battle. However we can't sit and do nothing. So, what can you do to help?

We feel the inmates would want family members to know, and the family members certainly deserve the right to know. Having a loved one incarcerated is bad enough, without this added worry.
