An in-depth report on the state of medicine and medical treatment within Ohio's prison system. Investigators found several problems with the system, doctors performing procedures they are not authorized to perform, inmate hearing loss due to medical technician's mistakes, etc. One inmate pulled his own tooth after being turned away from treatment 5 times. Another waited 18 hours for stitches. The problems in this system are numerous, and this story highlights them all.
