Prescription medication must be in its original container with a current expiration date, with the youth's name on it. Information of any illness such as diabetes, epilepsy, recent surgery, or unusual habits such as bedwetting or sleepwalking, should be made known to the youth's Probation Officer or to Detention Medical Staff as soon as possible.
