treatment for her GID” . BOP’S Freeze Frame Policy was one in which those whom suffered from gender identity disorder to be isolated and placed in confinement from the rest of the prison population. In addition to being confined these persons did not receive care for their condition. Those who suffer the disease can become depressed and suicidal as an affect of the isolation. State and federal corrections facilities are only required to administer the minimum in regards to healthcare for inmates. The Federal Correctional Institution Inmate Handbook outlines the policies of pre existing medical conditions. “In accordance with BOP policy, if you were incarcerated with a pre-existing medical condition, and it will not be detrimental to your health and well being during your confinement, the BOP will NOT take action to correct that problem”. Therefore Ms. Adams did not receive treatment for her disorder because she was not receiving treatment before being incarcerated. The Judge ruled that correctional facility must treat the defendant because they had began to treat her on hormone therapy once the complaint was filed. Therefore the Director of Health for the prison issued a memo to all facilities that the inmates who suffer from GID must first receive a psychological evaluation prior to being treated.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
