    I don't personally work there however I do live in the vicinity of Nassau County and I can tell you this much. The medical provider is constantly making headlines for malpractice, negligence and lawsuits. A decent number of inmates died in a short amount of time 13 since 2011 I believe and the provider has been directly linked to a number of them. The US attorney actually banned the medical provider from making bids in any facility for 3 years. The jail is going back to having the county hospital(which happens to actually be visible from the jail) taking over medical care as they did before this company was hired to provide medical care. Actually if I am not mistaken the medical center may have already taken over I am not sure about that.

    I am sorry if I didn't answer your questions but I wanted you some information about the jail as I said it is constantly making headlines. I didn't want you to go apply for a job that may be phased out due to another provider coming in that might already have their own staff in place.
