(a) Except for such camps and other satellite facilities where segregating a newly arrived
inmate in detention is not feasible, the Warden shall ensure that a newly arrived
inmate is cleared by the Medical Department and provided a social interview by staff
before assignment to the general population.
(1) Immediately upon an inmate's arrival, staff shall interview the inmate to determine
if there are non-medical reasons for housing the inmate away from the general population. Staff shall evaluate both the general physical appearance and emotional condition
of the inmate.
(2) Within 24 hours after an inmate's arrival, medical staff shall medically screen the
inmate in compliance with Bureau of Prisons' medical procedures to determine if there
are medical reasons for housing the inmate away from the general population or for
restricting temporary work assignments.
(3) Staff shall place recorded results of the intake medical screening and the social
interview in the inmate's central file.
