Automatic TRANSCRIPT

And they because of privacy rules of hip or rules they don't have access in most cases to the prisoners medical records so they're responsible for caring for somebody but they don't necessarily know what they're supposed to be looking for or what to do if they see a particular behavior so there's never enough treatment beds right in prison out of prison and and for the limited beds that are available in a correctional institution guards some have have a role in deciding who gets to go there what are conditions like in in these prison hospitals if you will are they better in some cases they are in los angeles county they they are it's a separate unit that's a licensed behavioral healthcare facility the cells it's just it's a little bit quieter it feels a little bit more like a hospital even though the people are locked in cells in los angeles in particular if it's odd because because of the licensing and so on they're more likely to treat people over objection in other words if the prisoner doesn't wanna get medication the hospital part of the jail is more likely to to force them to take it with a judge's order and so on and so the people often seem healthier and senior than the people you see on high odds but it it feels a little bit more like a clinic the food is often said to be better the restrictions are a little bit looser but it's still in jail and it still feels like a jail and there are a lot of people who will say that you cannot do good psychiatric care in a in a jail or prison do do prisoners fake a mental illness in order to get to the hospital or do do correctional officers believed that they're faking and psychiatrists mental health professionals certainly some people do fake mental illness and are apparently more likely to do so in a jail or prison setting there's just more to be gained by say getting out of the general population they'll say you know.
