He is NEVER going to get treated medically "like he was out" as thats the benefit of "being out" and reason not to get pinched and be "in". That said, he will haveto hire, at his expense most likely, a civil rights lawyer to address whether the care provided falls below the acceptable standard for inmates and try to force them to provide that standard of care if they are not.
