CA regains control of inmate healthcare
The federal courts will begin handing responsibility for inmate healthcare back to California corrections officials. This is the first step in ending a 7-year-old receivership that has cost the state billions of dollars to improve prison medical conditions. The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation will assume responsibility for hiring employees and preparing to open a $1 billion prison medical complex in Stockton. The state also is taking charge of 2,200 guards responsible for transporting inmates to medical appointments.
