Instructions for Filing a Regular Grievance Form
this information was taken from the actual grievance form and the definitions from VA DOC website

According to the code of the state of Virginia, “it shall be unlawful for the Board or any other
correctional authority having the care, custody or control of any prisoner in this Commonwealth
to make or enforce any rule or regulation providing for the whipping, flogging or administration
of any similar corporal punishment of any prisoner, or to give any specific order for or to cause
to be administered or personally to administer or inflict any such corporal punishment.”

If you have experienced such abuses or medical neglect in the state of Virginia you are
required per Division operating Procedure 866 “Inmate Grievance Procedure” to attempt to
resolve your complaint in good faith prior to filing a grievance. The institutional Implementation
Memorandum 866 details the informal process to use. If the good faith method does not solve
the problem, then you should file a grievance keeping in mind that you must submit your
grievance within 30 days from the date of the incident or the date in which you
discovered the incident. Only one issue per grievance will be addressed. Write your issue
only in the space provided on the grievance form, preferably in ink. Regular grievances are
submitted through the institutional mail to the Warden/Superintendent’s office and unless
returned during intake (see the next paragraph) a receipt should be issued within 2 working
days from date the grievance was received.

You can also file an emergency grievance. Emergencies are defined as situations or
conditions which may subject the inmate to immediate risk of serious personal injury or
irreparable harm.

Grievances should be accepted for logging unless they are returned. If returned, they will
indicate the reason why it was not accepted and if you disagree with the decision to return
your grievance, you have 5 calendar days from the date of receipt to submit to the Regional
Ombudsman for a review of the intake decision. According to the code of Virginia, the
Ombudsman’s role is to “assist management and administration in providing quality assurance
to curtail unnecessary inmate litigation and unnecessary expenses to the citizens of Virginia by
monitoring the Department's Inmate Grievance Procedure and providing investigative services
for Levels I and II of the Procedure.” The Regional Ombudsman’s decision is final. Your
institution should provide the necessary addresses.

You are also able to withdrawal a grievance but by doing so you agree that there will be no
further action on the issue nor will you be able to file any other grievance in the future on the
issue.
The following guidelines have been written by people who
are currently incarcerated in Pennsylvania, augmented
by prisoners in Virginia and advocates.
   1. Follow the correct procedure for filing a grievance at your facility. Remember: you must exhaust all available
administrative remedies (i.e"( i.e. pursue the issues you're complaining about through all levels of appeal available in your
institutions' grievance procedure, such as on complaints of alleged deliberate indifference to one's medical needs/physical
abuse, etc.) before you can pursue federal litigation according to the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA). Virginia has a
similar requirement under state laws regarding claims you may file in its state courts."
   2. It is also a good idea to contact the Medical Director and Health Care Administrator for your prison to see what their
knowledge of the situation is and if they can help. It is most effective if a family member or loved one can make that call. If
you’re outside support person is not a blood relative they may have to be authorized to discuss your medical records. This
involves more paperwork but is possible. Keep in mind, even if the staff is not authorized to share information with you over
the phone, you can share information with them. Let them know what you know about the situation. If you have absolutely
no support, ask a friend if part of their support team would be willing to aid you. Also, try contacting outside organizations.
   3. If you have experienced physical abuse try to see medical staff and get documentation if available. Have your support
team call your counselor, chaplain, unit manager and the warden to discuss the incident. Try one at a time. You should also
keep in mind that medical staff may try to minimize the seriousness of your injuries. Many of them will do this to protect
abusive guards from litigation by making your injuries seem 'de- minimus.' By making your injuries seem like minor abuses,
you may fail to meet the requirement of 'seriousness' that federal law requires to establish a constitutional violation.
Therefore, you may want to have a family member become involved to ensure your injuries are properly addressed and
documented. Again, a family member will be most effective at making this call.
   4. Tips for the support person on making calls - Try to avoid sounding accusatory on the phone. Counselors are good
people to build relationships with as they are supposed to advocate for your loved one although they are not in charge of
security or the grievance process. Often times they have such a huge caseload they are not sure who your loved one is and
often times they can provide you with information. Calling the prison and building relationships with the staff no matter how
hard it seems lets the administrators and staff know, that you are out there paying attention. It is good to know where your
loved one in prison is in the grievance procedure. For example, this way you can say: “They have reached this stage of the
grievance procedure, nothing is being done. I am concerned, what can I do to make sure my loved one is all right? I am
worried, This is what I know what do you know?” It’s best to call before 3pm. If you don’t have long distance and/or it is
hard for you to make calls because of your work schedule contact an outside organization for possible help.
   5. Make copies of all actions you take. Keep one and try to get at least one copy of everything you do to someone you
trust on the outside.
   6. Make sure to educate yourself on your medical problem(s) or prescriptions prescribed – this can mean doing your own
research and/or getting someone to do it for you or assist you. You can use this information in your efforts to get the
institutions medical personnel to address your concerns. You must be your own medical assistant! If the issue is medical
care and you have a chronic condition for which you received treatment on the outside, ask your former doctor to write a
letter to the prison health staff inquiring about the person's care or to make a phone call to the prison on the person's behalf.
Also when researching and seeking info on one’s medical condition/disease, consider connecting with local agencies for info,
resources and advice near their prison as a relationship building possibility.
   7. Try not to adopt a hostile attitude towards staff members but also never blindly accept what they say to be true without
confirmation from other sources (i.e. the research you’ve done).
   8. Also, don’t be afraid to complain! Officials will often try to discourage you from
complaining and pressure you to drop your complaints. Remember, if you do not exhaust your administrative remedies- by
either refusing to complain or dropping your complaints- you will not be able to litigate the matter.
   9. Medical malpractice suits should be filed in a state court as the standard of proof is higher in federal court. While it is
true medical malpractice cases have a lower standard than deliberate indifference cases in federal courts, in PA, one needs to
get another medical professional to certify that the treatment fell below the standard of care. There is an exception to this if
the medical care was so negligent that it is obviously below the standard of care.
   10. If you have experienced physical abuse and are in state institution, you may want to contact the Office of the
Secretary of Public Safety P.O. Box 1475 Richmond, VA 23218 (804) 786-5351
   11. Get involved with street organizations that represent prisoners’ rights/health but also do not solely rely on them.
Instead, mainly rely on family or any friend you can interest for support and they can also network with the street
organizations in helping you. See Resources elsewhere in the guide
   12 .Last of all, and very importantly, make smart decisions and keep yourself as healthy as possible by not smoking, eating
well, exercising, and doing things that make you feel good – physically, mentally and emotionally.
