New York City Jericho received a phone call from Robert Seth Hayes this 
evening. He is in the so-called "infirmary," which is actually more like 
a SHU unit, with no medical personnel present and COs making medical 

As people know, Seth has been having serious problems with the insulin 
pump/sensor for the past month. First, he was left with a defective 
sensor implanted under his skin for almost 2 weeks and had to totally 
rely on finger sticks for his blood glucose levels.

Then, when the facility doctor finally changed the sensor, the pump was 
calibrated incorrectly, to the point that Seth was being given alarms 
that his sugars were low when they were actually quite high.

Seth sounded horrible on the phone, which is no wonder when his blood 
sugar is in the high 600s. Anyone else would be in a diabetic coma with 
these numbers.

Seth would like to go to Albany Medical Center to see the 
endocrinologist, which was supposed to happen earlier this month. He 
says medical staff at Albany Med are professional and concerned about 
their patients, something that is certainly not true at Sullivan.

Please call, fax and email Dr. Koenigsmann:

Carl J. Koenigsmann M.D.
Deputy Commissioner/Chief Medical Officer
NYS DOCCS Division of Health Services
Harriman State Campus, Building #2
1220 Washington Avenue
Albany, New York 12226-2050
Phone: 518-457-7073
Fax: 518-445-7553
Carl.Koenigsmann at doccs.ny.gov

Also call Superintendent Keyser:

Superintendent Keyser
Sullivan Correctional Facility
325 Riverside Drive
Fallsburg, New York 12733
(845) 434-2080

Demand that Robert Seth Hayes #74A2280 be taken immediately to Albany 
Medical Center on an emergency basis. DOCCS is violating Seth's 
constitutional rights by not providing adequate medical care.

Remember that the last time Seth went to AMC his sugars were 1130, 
although equipment at Sullivan was reading in the 550 range.

Seth got the word he was denied medical parole just a few days ago. 

Love and Rage,
