Santa Rita Jail Imates Recieving Inadequate care!

As one is in a cell currently awaiting next court date for the allegations at hand. He has informed staff and medical that he has a serious condition. Hyperthyroidism/Enlarged heart. A condition where he has to be monitored regularly esspecailly when not recieving any medication for his condition let alone hasnt even been evaluated or acknowleged by the Santa Rita Jail medical staff after him supplying medical
Forms. I mind you it has been 14 days! Being concerned as I am, Who can actual
fail to notice that this is a pure case of medical neglect. When dealing with law enforcement and Jails or Jail staff how do U address issues like this? Not only are serious medical conditions being neglected. Eighth amendment to the united states constitution states “Cruel and Unusual punishment” Inmates are being deprived of food, sanitation, and proper medical care! Deputys are inconsistent with allowing inmates to take routine showers- However, they still manage to put it in “the log” that they do.
Every 4 days is not a healthy routine when your already placed in a unsanitary-vent filled with funk, somehow dusty concrete cube already. I understand wellpath (SRJ Medical staff) whom the jail is contracted with is failing to do their job without empathy and passion like you would assume anyone whos in the medical field to be. If anything happens to my spouse while being untreated for his medical
Condition when they are completely aware of it not only from his paper medical forms hand given during intake but as well as medical forms submitted on the tablet he’s given daily just recently of course, also my phone calls to the jail voicing my concerns then being hung up on by staff.

Guilty until proven innocent?
Innocent until proven guilty?
Either way no life should be treated without treatment esspecially when its a serious condition and could possibly not being a life anymore. Who are these people!?! Help!
