California regains control of healthcare at Folsom Prison

July 13, 2015
California will be allowed to oversee the healthcare for inmates at Folsom Prison, officials said, nearly a decade after the state lost control of prison medical services amid allegations of substandard care in the correctional system. The move is the first step toward returning control of prison healthcare across California to state officials, said J. Clark Kelso, the federal receiver appointed in 2006 to oversee prison healthcare. Kelso said the order transferring the control of healthcare was revocable and that his office would monitor the state's efforts. He said there was no timeline for the other prisons or for dissolving the receivership.
