Urgent Health Campaign for Robert Seth Hayes, #74-A-2280

robert_seth_hayesNYC Jericho:

Talking Points:

Robert Seth Hayes is currently 65 years old. He was first diagnosed with Type II diabetes in the year 2000. In the 13 years since then, DOCCS has been completely unable to control his blood sugar levels. At the time he was diagnosed, Mr. Hayes was at Clinton. He was transferred to Wende in 2003 and then to Sullivan in 2010.

Throughout this time, Mr. Hayes’ sugar levels have either soared to the 300 to 400 levels or been extremely low, in the 50 to 70 levels, both life-threatening. Mr. Hayes also has Hepatitis C, for which he is currently not receiving any treatment.

Mr. Hayes has lost 40 pounds in recent months and currently weighs only 140 pounds. This is extremely rapid and dangerous weight loss. Diabetes is an insidious disease, and the constant sugar fluctuations can lead to renal failure, coma or stroke.

NYS DOCCS states on its website that denial of adequate medical care is a violation of a person’s eighth amendment constitutional rights, as this would be cruel and unusual punishment. Of course, adequate medical care would include a diabetic diet, which is absolutely not provided by NYS DOCCS. Additionally, they refuse to allow food package items such as diabetic cookies and candies.

Since NYS DOCCS has been completely unable to control Mr. Hayes’ sugar levels during the past 13 years, the community requests that he be taken to an outside medical facility for a complete diagnosis and adequate care.

Of course, if Robert Seth Hayes had been released on parole instead of having 15 years added to his sentence by the NYS DOCCS Parole Board, he would be a free man today and would have better access to adequate medical care than he currently does.

Please write, call, fax and email the following people and insist that Robert Seth Hayes, DIN No. 74-A-2280, be taken to an outside medical facility as soon as possible. If you are a doctor, nurse, or any other kind of medical personnel, please use your letterhead.

Please email nycjericho@gmail.com and let us know what response you receive. Also, if you are able to find out any additional phone or fax numbers, we will be grateful for the information
