The Dispatch follows the lead from the death of a 19-year old inmate Sean Schwamberger from an undetected drug-resistant staph infection, in order to carry out a detailed investigation of healthcare in prisons. The revelations are startling. While some critically ill inmates died after waiting an hour for ambulances, some went without surgery for 16 months during which time their ailments worsened. It was also found that the track record of some physicians who treated the inmates, included felony. And amid complaints of the low caliber and poor performance of contractor-provided physicians, the taxpayer pays more than $1 million in bills to pay wrongful death and medical negligence claims filed by inmates and their families.
