This is the summary report created by the Prison Law Office after touring California’s newest prison in early January. The massive California Health Care Facility opened six months ago to provide medical treatment and psychiatric care to more than 1,700 inmates. It remains only partially opened. Inspectors found shortages in medical supplies, hygiene provisions, and staffing. Inmates contended nursing calls went unanswered and possibly contributed to the death of one prisoners. New admissions at the prison were halted on Friday by a court-appointed overseer.
