Need an Expert Witness?
Healthcare at jails, prisons, and detention facilities is unique when compared to the risks facing local hospitals. When evaluating policies or claims, it is vital to use an expert witness who has expertise in the intricacies of correctional healthcare. Our experienced medical expert witness professionals regularly assess and opine on medical claims at juvenile confinement facilities, correctional facilities, detention facilities, and any correctional related healthcare facility.
Managing and evaluating correctional healthcare risk involves using accepted health care policies & procedures, and reasonable medical and mental health practices unique to the corrections environment. These evaluations often encompass local medical practices balanced against accepted guidelines including state-specific regulations, US Department of Corrections guidelines, ACA, or NCCHC.
The most common issues reviewed are questions centering on suicide prevention, access to medical care, intake screening, mental health, medical evaluations, medication distribution, and quality of care. Whether you are working with a state tort law or 42 US Code §1983 claim, OSS can help!
