When you go to jail do they test you for HIV/STDS periodically?

i heard from several people that when you are in jail you get tested for HIV/STDS and drugs pretty frequently. is this true?what is the exposure to these diseases like in jail?

They do test you when you are first incarcerated after that I don't know. I was a nurse in a hospital that serviced a prison and most of the prisoners we got were HIV+
not unless they have symptoms
nope, they only test you if your showing symptoms, other wise they want to spend as little money on you as possable.
it depends on the management... but most of the time prisoners have their check up at least 3-4 times a year....
i'm still young
dono bout these
It all depends on the state you are encraserated. in most states they test in the begining and at the end of the time served.
no way, when you're locked up noone cares
