Using the memorable childhood story as a backdrop, the Wizard of Oz Guide to Correctional Nursing explains how correctional nursing is not like any other specialty in our profession. This isn't Kansas anymore, Toto! Yet, the principles of professional nursing are the same and must be applied in this new Land of Oz. This book provides the resources needed to gain the knowledge, heart, and courage to be a correctional nurse who makes a difference every day in the lives of an invisible, yet needy, patient population. This Wizard of Oz Guide to Correctional Nursing is an attempt to describe the various differences of correctional nursing practice while also affirming the sameness of professional nursing practice in the midst of the people and places of this new land. Using the familiar characters, places, and experiences of the story of the Wizard of Oz, you will journey to find your true self at the end of the Yellow Brick Road.

Each person confined in jails, prisons, and juvenile detention facilities must be afforded unimpeded access to needed health care. Such persons, without risk of interference or fear of reprisal, should be able to alert health care staff of a medical need, obtain a timely professional evaluation of that need, and receive treatment in the manner prescribed by a competent provider. Simply stated, no correctional officer should ever prevent, impede, or inhibit anyone from alerting a health care provider of a perceived need for health services, even though the officer may believe the request is trivial, fictitious, or undeserved. This book focuses on access to health care services by special populations in correctional institutions (women, youths, elderly, persons with dementia, and the terminally ill), which includes important information on privatization in corrections. The following topics are featured: the context, principles, balance and implications of correctional health care, including the recent detention of immigrants in the United States; the unimpeded access to care, enhancements, stress reductions, health literacy, culture, ethnicity, religion, intake health screening, medical clearance for transfer or release, medications and clinical appointments, emergency care services, special settings, copayments, and budgeting for health care services; privatization, contracts, evaluating bids, monitoring the contract, and minimizing adverse risks; special health concerns of incarcerated women, communicable disease, pregnancy-related concerns, aging, frailty, osteoporosis, mental health, cosmetic concerns, health education and job assignments; youth in corrections, hygiene, exercise, gender-specific needs of young women, informed consent, supervision of vulnerable youth, substance abuse treatment, and the community connection; special health needs and humane care and alternative care of the aging; the prevalence, person-centered care, elements of care, environment, restraints, visits, and the ethics of incarcerating persons with dementia. The book concludes with end-of-life care in prison, hospice, palliative care, and compassionate release. It will serve as an invaluable tool for correctional officers, health care providers, justice and legal professionals, social workers, mental health professionals, and counselors.
