Inmate Health and Welfare
Medical and Dental Care
Inmates are provided with appropriate and necessary medical and dental care. The Jail is staffed with a Nurse and Physician to provide this care. In the case of an emergency inmates are taken to the Sutter Amador Hospital.
Inmates may be seen by their own physician; at their own expense, plus the cost of transportation. In these cases the costs for transportation will be pre-paid; the cost for medical treatment will be by agreement between the inmate and outside facility physician or treatment facility.
Medication is delivered to inmates under the direction of the detention physician. Over the counter medications such as Tylenol and antacid are available upon request.
Being in jail can be stressful. Amador County Mental Health is available at the request of the inmate or staff.
