BOISE, Idaho -- Prison health care company Corizon says a scathing court-ordered report on care provided at an Idaho prison is full of errors, and that a review they paid for themselves proves it. But a review of both reports show they focused on different aspects of the health care system, and they found some similar problems.
Last year, a federal judge appointed health care expert Dr. Marc Stern to review the prison's care as part of a lawsuit between inmates and Idaho. Stern's report found several problems, including some nursing mistakes he said likely caused some deaths.
Corizon, which is the medical contractor at the prison, hired the National Commission on Correctional Health Care to do its own review. Corizon released the report Thursday, contending it countered Stern's findings, vindicating the company.
