Correctional facilities across the United States have been involved in numerous lawsuits, often resulting in large judgments and settlements. This webinar explores the issues that resulted in liability and provides steps that can minimize the risk for jails. Topics include a review of the litigation that inmates and their families have successfully filed against correctional agencies and staff. It also reviews best practices that can be implemented in areas such as intake screening, the management of offenders who are detoxing, and chronic care.
