In the aspects of medical care, Tainan Detention Center adopts the principle of
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
To prevent the spread of disease, Tainan Detention Center ask every
inmate/defendants must take a shower and put on clean clothes provided
by the Center first before being arranged a ward.
We sweep, clean up all of the wards, gutters, bathrooms and nooks, and
disinfect the environment every week to preclude the possibility of illness
in the Center. The Sanitation and Health section arranges health education
from time to time, and also contacts the Department of Health, Tainan City
Government for influenza vaccination every year.
An inmate/defendant will be arranged a health check first when entering the Center.Then the Sanitation and Health section will arrange chest X-rays and blood tests.If an inmate/defendant is sick, doctors in the Center will examine he/she.
In addition, in emergency situation, an inmate/defendant will be taken by
ambulance to the public hospital. If it is necessary for inmate/defendant to
bail outside for medical treatment, the Center will report to prosecutor’s office,
court, or Agency of Corrections, Ministry of Justice.
