PHS Hit With $312,000 verdict
Prison Health Services, a private company that provides "medical care" to prisoners, has just been found negligent in the case of a 41-year-old prisoner who broke his ankle and failed to receive proper medical attention. They have to pay him $312,000. It took them 5 days to X-ray his ankle, after which they put it in a cast and placed him in a top-tier bunk, forcing him to climb up and down stairs every day.
