Four Inmates at the Sacramento County Main Jail Successfully Treated with Narcan; Listed in Stable Condition

Shortly after 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 28, 2021, deputies at the Sacramento County Main Jail alerted medical staff that a male inmate was suffering from an unknown medical emergency.  Medical staff responded and rendered aid to the inmate.  Moments later, deputies were made aware of three (3) additional inmates, housed on the same floor as the initial inmate, who were also suffering from unknown medical emergencies displaying similar symptoms.  Believing the cause to be a possible overdose, medical staff administered the medication, Narcan, to counter the effects of a possible overdose.  The inmates responded to the treatment and became alert and responsive. 

Fire personnel responded and transported all four inmates to a local area hospital where they are all listed in stable condition.

An investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of this incident.  No information is available at this time.
