Patient care neglected at Texas jail

Jennifer Autrey, with contributions from Bill Teeter, of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reviewed documents of JPS Health Network, the organization that runs the county's public hospital and jail health-care system, to show that with the inmates' health care, nightmare medical experiences happened all too often. The investigation revealed that administrators overlooked numerous telltale signs of the medical crisis.

The jail doctors, who work for a physicians group through a contract with JPS, reported that they were hampered at their jobs. Also see a narrative derived from the paper trail.
