This series of stories revealed substandard medical care in Ohio prisons. The death of a 19-year-old inmate from a staph skin infection prompted the investigation, which later revealed a settlement from a wrongful death lawsuit, prison doctors who lied about their backgrounds and state-hired doctor-placement agencies with repeated problems. Four months after the investigation the Ohio Prison Department recommended 140 changes to the prison medical system.
