Description

This investigation focuses on the health care -- or lack thereof -- provided for female prisoners at the Carswell Federal Medical Center near Fort Worth, TX, the only prison hospital in the country for mentally and chronically ill or dying women who have been convicted of a federal crime. These stories feature two women in their 40s whose cases were the most egregious. They cover the womens' lives and medical histories in and out of prison, the trail of contradictory documents and misleading statements released by the prison, and the families' struggles to save the womens' lives and find out the truth about the medical care system at Carswell.
