So goes an advertisement for medical professionals to work for a company specializing in prison health care, according to a disturbing story in the New York Times
As the story points out, who the hell is going to work as a doctor or nurse in a prison. The pay, I assume, is probably crappy, the prestige negative and the population about the worst you could imagine, even neglecting the high prevalence of borderline personality disorder (think sociopath).
Except for the odd deeply religious individual who sees prison work as his ministry, the medical profesisonals these companies recruit are likely to be the bottom of the barrel.
Nonetheless, the examples of care provided in this article are horrendous. Of course, prisoners probably don't make very good plaintiffs in malpractice suits, so the companies can get by with substandard care and not give too much back in malpractice.
