Securing Great Prison Medical Care Through The Proper Motions

nlpa blog 11 4-07-15While there is medical care in prison that all prisoners can receive, this care is not always adequate for people with certain kind of ailments. When someone is sick, time is really of the essence and it is important that they receive the treatment that they really deserve to receive as a human being. This can be challenging in a prison system since resources are not as readily available.

It is a good idea for those with special medical problems to find help getting the right medical care that they need. Prison medical care for these patients may not be enough so they may need to have a brief furlough where they can be treated properly by specialists. Knowing what motions to put forward when a friend or family member is facing sickness while in prison can help them to get the care they need quickly.

Understanding How to Obtain Proper Prison Medical Care

nlpa blog 7 10-08-14In many situations, people do not feel that their loved ones are receiving the right amount of medical care when they are in prison.

To try to help navigate the prison medical care system it helps to get more information. You can get information on legal avenues available to help get a loved one the medical attention they deserve.

nlpa blog 11 9-09-14Everyone knows that people make mistakes. Some people make worse mistakes than others, but we are all human.

Don’t Attempt Brief Writing By Yourself

NLPA blog 2 6-23-14When my uncle was young, he was arrested for trespassing on government property because he was found walking on railroad tracks. My uncle was facing federal charges, but didn’t think it would be too difficult to navigate the system by himself. He nearly lost his case because he started out without a lawyer and without any kind of experience in the legal system.

Many people facing criminal charges feel that they can avoid spending too much money by defending themselves. Even in the least complicated cases, it is important that you have professionals on your side. Attempting to defend yourself or trying your own hand at brief writing could mean that you end up with a conviction that would otherwise have gone away.

Prison Medical Care Assistance

Prison_MedicalDo You Have A Loved One Who is Incarcerated In The Bureau of Prisons And In Need of Prison Medical Care? 

If you are suffering from a serious medical problem and if the Bureau of Prisons is neglecting to provide you with the medical care which you so desperately need, NLPA can assist your attorney in pursuing a court order that the Bureau of Prisons provide the proper medical care or a medical furlough so you can receive private medical treatment “on the street” from your own physician.

There are two ways in which a federal prison inmate can obtain medical treatment:

Administrative Application For Medical Furlough – Pursuant to Bureau of Prisons Program Statement 5280.4, the Attorney General of the United States has delegated the authority to grant furloughs under Title 18 United States Code Section 4082(c) to the Director, Bureau of Prisons (28CFR0.96)d. Title 18 USC 4082 applies to inmates whose offenses occurred before November 1, 1987. For inmates whose offenses occurred on or after November 1, 1987 the statutory authority for furloughs is found in Title 18 USC Section 3662 of the Comprehensive Crime Control Act. The authority to approve furloughs in the Bureau of Prisons institutions is delegated to the Warden or the Acting Warden. Pursuant to BOP Program Statement 5280.4 the Warden may approve a furlough for purposes of obtaining necessary medical, surgical, psychiatric or dental treatment not otherwise available.

 Court Ordered Medical Treatment –

 (a) Court Ordered Medical Treatment – if the BOP either fails or refuses efforts administratively to receive proper medical care, the next step is to have counsel file a motion in court asking the court to order the prison to provide you with proper medical care.

 (b) Motion for Medical Furlough – If the prison fails to comply with the court’s order to provide you with medical care, it is possible to obtain a medical furlough as the result of the order of a federal court. This usually must be done, after an inmate has exhausted his administrative remedies and the Bureau of Prisons has decided to deny a furlough. However, in the case of a life threatening condition, it is possible to ask the court to allow you to bypass the administrative remedy process.
