What are an inmate's rights to proper medical treatment?

Question Details:

I visited a friend this morning in jail. She dislocated her shoulder from a seizure last Monday; nurse saw her briefly the next day but could for her because she did not have an appointment. She is being made to wait until this Tuesday (over 1 week later). They gave her ibuprofen but are they obligated to do more than that?
