Default Healthcare investigation?

After reading CAdreaming's post and having read some other horror stories about medical care in prison, and my son dealing with a knee injury and not getting the necessary help, I'd like to see an investigation. Does anyone know a good investigative reporter? Medical care in the system is appalling. Indifference and incompetence both.

I am having this same issue now. My LO is in Bennettsville in South Carolina. He first started having pain and going numb on his lower left side. Now he is on crutches. They took xrays and stated that since its been twelve years since he had his surgery and rod place in that his bone is detearating. and that he need emergency surgery as soon as possible. Its been a month since they took the xray. He is constantly in pain and they are not helping him. I think that my next step is going to be to call Washington and file a complaint.
