Health Care and Medications

Health Care Services

Washington County provides a variety of health care services which include medical care, dental care, and psychological care from licensed professionals within our community.

We have several registered nurses on site during the week Monday through Friday. There is one registered nurse on site during the weekend days.

Inmates have access to their prescription medications and can purchase over the counter medications. Doctor, dentist, and nurse visits are given for a nominal fee. Inmates who have medical insurance are billed for services rendered.

Other Medications

Family members and friends can drop off medications in the main lobby of the jail. The jail only accepts valid, non-expired prescriptions. Authorized items such as contact lenses solutions will only be accepted in new, unopened, non tampered containers.

HIPPA Regulations

Due to patient confidentiality and HIPPA regulations, we are unable to answer medical questions and concerns over the phone. The inmate must sign a HIPPA Release of Information Form before any information can be given out in writing.
