Corizon, the for-profit prison healthcare provider, recently came under fire for the "services" it has been providing to Idaho's prisoners. They also are facing scrutiny as the subject of a wrongful death lawsuit coming out of the St. Louis Jail. A 31-year-old man died there in 2009 from complications from a heart condition after requesting medical treatment numerous times. His death should have never happened, though - a report nearly a decade and a half ago showed nearly 20 preventable deaths had occurred under the company's watch to that point, and a few other preventable deaths have occurred at this facility since.
But I guess that's the logical outcome when a profit-driven company is given responsibility to care for ill prisoners.
