Texas Medical Unit Lacking Basic Accomodations for Disabled Prisoners

I need more info on the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. I do know that handrails are considered reasonable accommodation for disabled persons. How is it that the federal government recognizes me as fully disabled but the state of Texas does not? The grievances i have filed have all come back with Basic Generic answers and the person whom signed their name was not legible, no rank or official title was listed and they came back months after the deadline. When I wrote the unit grievance investigator my I-60s never return. That's crazy. I am in danger of losing a limb if I fall, why isn't there handrails in the shower or around the toilets? And why are my grievances basically ignored. What's going on in the Texas prison system. Beto is considered a medical unit that's not equipped to handle serious inmates with disabilities. I see guys with walkers, canes, crutches, leg braces all struggling to get around and to bathe. The warden "Norris Jackson" told me himself that Beto doesn't have medical showers, but TDCJ website says it does. Well I live here every day and I am disabled and there are no medical showers. So the website is a lie.
