No one really talks about the negative impact sitting in a jail cell has on your health.
The biggest health risk connected to being incarcerated is that it doesn’t take long for even a minor flu or cold bug to work its way from one inmate to another. The reason the rate of infections is so high in jail is that most jails don’t have good ventilation and have too many people living in close quarters. They also aren’t exactly the cleanest of places.
If one person starts coughing, it usually isn’t long before everyone is sick, and being sick while locked in a jail cell isn’t any fun at all.
The guards and jail personnel do their best, but limited knowledge, money, and supplies often means that there is a delay when someone needs serious medical attention. This delay, even if it is only a few minutes, can have a serious impact on your overall health, particularly if you’re talking about a head injury, respiratory condition, or pulmonary problem. If there isn’t a doctor readily available, it can take a little time for the jail personnel to put together safe transportation to the nearest hospital. The delay can lead to additional health complications.
Problems in communication can also lead to a lack of understanding regarding the care of chronic health conditions.
The biggest health problem connected to being in jail is stress. As soon as your arrested, it’s natural to start worrying about your future, the future of your family, and how you can possibly make things work out. Not only does this stress take a toll on both your mental and physical health, but it can also cause you to make rash decisions that aren’t in your best interest.
