The FW Weekly report about "medical treatment of female inmates at the Federal Medical Center Carswell, located just outside Fort Worth. ... (the) investigation found a pattern of medical treatment there that is extremely poor, capricious and life threatening. Procedures or referrals to outside specialists are routinely denied until the women's conditions have worsened dramatically. Wrong diagnoses by Physician Assistants are routine. Deaths have occurred following denials of medical care."
