EMERGENCY MEDICAL CAMPAIGN FOR POLITIKAL PRISONER ROBERT SETH HAYEZ


PLEASE POST AND SPREAD WIDELY AND TAKE ACTION!

URGENT MEDICAL CAMPAIGN
FOR ROBERT SETH HAYES

Political Prisoner Seth Hayes
Needs Us Again!

PLEASE CALL, WRITE AND FAX!
MONDAY, FEB. 6 THRU FRIDAY FEB. 10, 2017

Seth suffered another Diabetic Coma or Code Blue today, Feb. 5, 2017! This time he fell so hard he broke a tooth and opened a cut above his eye. He is currently with stabilized sugars in the infirmary with a headache and being monitored and getting X-rays.

Seth has been suffering from uncontrolled diabetes for over 16 years now. His sugars go up to the 400’s, then down so low he falls into a diabetic coma. Each diabetic coma he goes into could end in death if not noticed and treated right away or from a fall such as the one that occurred today.

We are asking that Seth be given an insulin pump/sugar monitor immediately to avert these near fatal incidents. He had consultation with an endocrinologist at Coxsackie in early October 2016 and was told the paperwork to receive a insulin pump would be pushed immediately. On November 20, 2016 Seth wrote a grievance stating he has not heard anything. He has still not received any response to this grievance almost 3 months later. Despite the endocrinologist’s recommendation, call in campaigns, and the grievance, it is months later and still no pump.

The NYS DOCCS is completely aware of the situation and is stalling; we cannot afford to have another incident of low sugar. THIS IS A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH!

Seth’s constant extreme fluctuations in sugar levels have led to him no longer being able to tell when his sugars are high or low. The sugar monitor sends a loud warning if his sugars are beginning to get either too high or too low and the pump allows him to use small dosages of insulin when needed along with his eating schedule and daily activity.

Here is the grievance Seth wrote due to the long delay in approval of the insulin pump/sugar monitor:

In addition, Seth had another incident of low sugar on Monday, November 28, 2016, and was in the infirmary for overnight observation. It really is a matter of life and death that Seth be provided with an insulin pump/sugar monitor as soon as possible.

Seth called on December 4 to state the following:

If Seth’s sugars are high in the morning, he is given a dose of Levamir. If his sugars are still high at 11 a.m., he gets a dose of actual insulin. By the time his sugars are checked at 4 p.m. they are usually in the 30’s, prompting an emergency response.

We therefore urge you to call, write and fax to demand immediate provision of an Insulin Pump/Sugar Monitor to Robert Seth Hayes 74A2280. Seth needs this device immediately!

The Demands

1. Immediate provision of an Insulin Pump/Sugar Monitor to Robert Seth Hayes 74A2280. Seth needs this device immediately!

2. A Diabetic Diet that consists of fresh fruits and vegetables and all the current recommendations for diabetics. Not the false diabetic diet that is currently being issued. A bologna sandwich on white bread at night is NOT A DIABETIC DIET!

We ask people to please remain calm and respectful but to be clear in these demands
