Q: How will my advanced heart failure be treated in jail
A: This is something that a criminal defense attorney might know best, but you await a response for two weeks. There's no guarantee of a response (because this is something that few attorneys may be familiar with), but you could try reposting under the Criminal Law category. As a general matter, some states delegate services to third-party vendors. Here are a couple of resources that may or may not be useful in getting started in looking into the matter on your own until you are able to reach an attorney who is knowledgeable in this area.
- New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision - Division of Health Services
- New York City Health + Hospitals/Correctional Health Services
