A few stipulations and guidelines have been provided by the Federal Bureau of Prisons in the case of allowing inmates in correctional institutions make telephone calls during hospitalization.
Conditions for Making Calls during Hospitalization
- It is essential that the inmate has to be in hospital for a minimum of seven days, in order to be given permission to make calls from the hospital.
- It is also possible for the inmate to be granted permission to make phone calls, as deemed appropriate by the Prison Liaison, Unit Manager or the SDO. These calls, however, can only be made to a person whose number is listed in the inmate’s telephone list that has received prior approval.
Approval Given For Calls
Approval for calls is given by the following procedure:
The unit management is in charge of preparing a memorandum in this regard and this is to be faxed to the Hospital Liaison. The duty officer or the contract guard receives this memorandum from the Liaison. The memorandum can also be forwarded to the Prison Liaison, the SDO or the unit manager. They have to then contact the officer in charge or the duty officer and provide verbally verbal approval in order to allow the inmate to make the call. They must also supply all relevant information regarding the making of the calls.
It is essential for the officer in charge to make an entry in the escort log book regarding the approval of the inmate call. He has to also make entries regarding the duration of the call, the frequency, the number of the telephone being called and the person to whom the call is being made. The staff official who is granting the permission must also be informed and the name and designation should be mentioned in the log book.
The inmate is not allowed to mention the place where he is located, and in case of such an event, the call will be immediately ended and the officer in charge will have to contact the FMC Carswell to connect to the Office of the Lieutenant and obtain further instructions about what action to take.
Making A Call During Hospitalization – How To Make The Call?
- Initiating the call is done by the supervising officer. He will just dial the number and make sure that the recipient of the call is one who has been listed in the telephone list of the inmate.
- The telephone call made by the inmate can also be initiated by the hospital jail liaison staff.
