Jamie Scott was returned to her regular jail cell at CMCF in 2A B Zone on approximately
March 30. A permanent fistula was placed in her arm, however she still has the painful
catheter in her groin area. Jamie was told this will remain there for about 6 more weeks
as her arm heals and her veins become strong enough to take the dialysis. After surgery
her potassium spiked and she had vomiting and seizure. She has been stable since that
time as far as we have been able to determine.
One of the doctors who examined Jamie told her that she is at stage 5 kidney failure,
which is the worst and considered end stage, and that in the "free" world she would
qualify to be on the list for a kidney transplant. Other testing confirmed this and concur
that it is the fault of MDOC because they should have caught it much sooner than when
it reached stage 5, especially in light of Jamie's constant medical complaints and their
denial or shuffling of her medications. MDOC should not have been placing those
temporary catheters into her neck instead of placing a shunt in her arm before now, but
they were basically taking the cheap way out. Jamie needs to be RELEASED because
the prison cannot be trusted to give her ANY SEMBLANCE of adequate medical care,
particularly in her advanced stage of disease! As has been posted previously, Dr.
Gloria Perry stated that Jamie is not a candidate for transplant! Jamie's sister
and other family members have offered to be tested for compatibility, yet been
denied by MDOC.
In a Mississippi Clarion Ledge article on March 18, Commissioner Epps was quoted
"We've got a lot of sick people in Mississippi," he said. "Prison is just a subculture
of the culture. When they come in to us, unfortunately, many times they haven't
gotten treatment until we get them." All told, Epps said MDOC has 258 male and
female inmates with HIV or AIDS. But it doesn't end there. Altogether there are
5,621 inmates with medical conditions ranging from failing kidneys to heart disease.
