‘Baby and Me’ pregnancy program featured in American Jail Association magazine

‘Baby and Me’ pregnancy program featured in American Jail Association magazineThe January/February issue of American Jails, the bi-monthly publication of the American Jail Association (AJA), features an article by team member Susan Priddy, Health Services Administrator (HSA) for Corizon Health at the Okaloosa County Department of Corrections (OCDOC) in Crestview, Florida. Originally featured in the June 2015 issue of Inside the COR, the article spotlights the relatively new “Baby and Me” program for pregnant inmates within the OCDOC, detailing the reasons behind the creation of such a program, as well as the process involved in “enrolling” a patient in the Baby and Me program. In short, the goal of the program is to “increase the quality of care by using a multi-disciplinary approach to include both the patient and the community.” Though still in its initial phase, the program has already received positive feedback from both patients and the community. Additionally, the number of ER visits not resulting in delivery has been greatly reduced.
