    Medical Items for Visitation at Salinas Valley State Prison:

    If you have a need to bring in items relating to a medical condition, you must have
    documentation from your doctor as to its need. The documentation must include the
    doctor’s name, address, telephone number, and medical license number and must
    be updated every two years. With such verification as to its medical necessity, the
    following are allowed:

    Prescription medications that are life-sustaining or condition-stabilizing, such
    as inhalers or nitroglycerin; medications must be in the original pharmacy
    container with the patient’s name, the pharmacy name, and the doctor’s name,
    as well as the medication’s name. Quantities of medication are limited to what
    may be needed during the visit.

    Mobility devices such as canes, crutches, and wheelchairs; some prisons do
    not allow personal canes, crutches, or wheelchairs to be taken into visiting but
    require the visitor to exchange his/her personal device for a prison-issue device
    and then exchange back after the visit.

    Hats with documentation that they are medically necessary.

    Seat cushions or backs with documentation that they are medically necessary.

    If you have an implant or prosthetic device that includes metal and will set off
    the metal detector, you must have documentation from a doctor specifying the
    nature and location of the implant or device. With such documentation, staff
    will use a wand to sweep your body instead of the metal detector to ensure
    security
