    How is it that this young lady was booked into the Bexar County Jail on Sunday and is found in a detox cell on wednesday. Wasn’t anyone monitoring her? Why wasn’t she provided with proper medical evaluation or care? This is not the first time that the Bexar County Jail staff has neglected inmates with obvious medical needs and left them to die in their cells.

      She would have been evaluated by the medical staff which would be why she was placed into a detox cell. The medical staff belongs to the University Health System. They are not jail personnel. The Sheriff’s Office complies with the determination of the medical staff. It would be a liability issue for them if they didn’t. Detoxification cells are checked every 30 minutes. When an inmate dies in custody the Sheriff’s Office must submit all documentation relating to that inmate to The Texas Commission on Jail Standards. They, in turn, review the paperwork and decide if procedures were followed. The Medical Examiner’s Office will also generate a report on the autopsy.

      That’s three different outside agencies involved. Maybe it was something the jail staff did or didn’t do. Maybe it was something the medical staff did or didn’t do. Or maybe everything was done right and it was just something that was going to happen no matter what anyone did. We’ll have a better idea once all the facts are in.
