AG Sues Nassau Jail Medical Provider, Citing Inmate Deaths

Five inmates died since 2011 at Nassau County jail as a result of inadequate medical care, the New York State Commission on Correction alleged in documents obtained by the Press. The accusations sparked New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to file a lawsuit against the jail’s medical provider, Florida-based Armor Correctional Health Medical Services, seeking fines, an independent monitor over health care at the jail and barring the company from bidding on contracts in the state. This case was announced Tuesday—a week after the fifth death at the jail this year and the 12th since 2011, officials said.
