In the 1990s an inmate that was HIV-positive had it noted in their medical file. By court order, these notes had to be removed to protect the inmates’ rights. If a correctional staff member had a potential exposure they would not know if the inmate was HIV-positive or not. Should the staff member have a right to know this to protect their safety or not? Please explain your position and reasoning on this.
The prison system can transfer an inmate at any time they want. With this said, how can an inmate have a fair disciplinary trial/hearing if they cannot call witnesses if they are in a different prison? How do you suggest that this issue is handled? Be specific with solutions.
