And they say incompetence doesn’t pay. In prison health care, it seems incompetence is rewarded again and again and again. Florida became the 29th state to allow Corizon Prison Healthcare to control the lives and destinies of its inmate population. It’s even getting $1.2 BILLION over 2 years. Yet Corizon has been sued at least 660 times for malpractice. Before you react that prisoners just like to sue, remember the PLRA: they can’t sue unless they have jumped through all the technical hoops Congress invented to keep them out of courts. This number might be 100 times higher if those mis and mal treated had been able to sue. Many of them, of course, are dead.
