Video visits for Stateville
« on: November 04, 2018, 08:38:34 AM »
My LO has told me that Stateville is now doing video visitation.  I'm having a really hard time getting things set up through the website https://ildoc.gtlvisitme.com/app  Has anyone had any success with video visits at Stateville?

Quick update.  I was finally able to get my video visit.  Next time I will be sure to use either ear buds or headphones.  There's a terrible echo without them.  It took nearly 3 weeks to get approved.  But it was ok I guess.  Glad the first visit was free.  Not sure it's something we'll be doing in the future.  It was good to see his face but at the same time he was visibly uncomfortable.
