My son was incarcerated at ordance rd detention center..about 6 wks ago he told me he is having trouble breathing at night..i said go to medical..he did..they gave him an enhailor..about a wk later it's not working n he is now complaining of stomach hardness again I say go to medical..now they say it's acid reflux...another wk goes by n I see my son..his stomach is rock hard n swollen looking...i call the jail..speak to medical..beg them to take him to hospital..they do nothing..another wk goes by my son's legs begin to swell..again I call speak to medical n tell them something is wrong please take him to hospital...again nothing...after about a month of this my mother goes to the jail n speaks to a lietent...by now my son's abdomen is huge , hard n he is still having trouble breathing..a few days later a Dr finally sees him n tells my son it could be your heart we will do a blood test tomorrow..4 days later they finally took him down for it.. During the 4 day wait for blood test he was fired from his job ( he was on work release) because his boss said he was a liability n was afraid he was going to " fall out".. 5 days after this they released him on house arrest..which was Tuesday 4/9/19..i took him to hospital on the 11th...
My 21yr old son is in congestive heart failure..with multiple blood clots in both lungs..at least 35 lbs of fluid on his abdomen alone..not including the fluid in his legs n feet.." Every organ is filled with fluid..the er Dr couldn't believe ordance rd left him in this condition..i was told if I waited another 2 days he would have died!! He is now at harbor hospital waiting on a bed in the heart failure unit at union Memorial..
Had my son received the medical attention when this started it would have NEVER gotten to this point ..i was told he will never live a life of a normal 21 yr old again.
Ordance rd detention center failed my son n god knows how many others..this should have NEVER happened..i went up to the jail yesterday n spoke to another lietent..he told me he has trouble getting his guys in to medical for common things n that their medical staff is contracted out..
How can this be??...they left my son in this condition for over a month..im angry, hurt n disgusted that because of lack of treatment my son is fighting for his life..please please help me expose this cruelty...my son will never be the same..but maybe it will help the next person..
