Nassau County lawmakers have hired a new jail heath service monitor after New York State authorities accused the county jail’s medical provider of neglecting to prevent the deaths of at least five inmates. The Nassau Legislature’s rules committee unanimously approved the $45,000 contract with California-based Community Oriented Correctional Health Services. The company will make sure that Florida-based Armor Correctional Health Medical Services, the current health care provider at Nassau jail, complies with its contract. It will also ensure a smooth transition to a new provider in the coming months as the county switches to a new company.
