We are not satisfied with practices that maximize company profits at the expense of the functioning of the jail or prison, or practices that create legal risk and poor health outcomes. Similarly, we think that concealing or limiting the information provided to jail or prison administrators about health care services in their facility is not an appropriate way to conduct business. You should expect transparency in the provision of correctional health care.
Your jail or prison is unique, and should be treated as such. The term “individualized care” usually means that a specific person receives services according to his or her individual needs. When you work with CorrValues we assess your facility or system, develop a strategic plan specific to the health care needs in your facility, and monitor all services to ensure the strategic plan is being followed and its goals are being met.
Correctional facilities are frequently pressure cookers for all who enter them. Staff and inmates experience stress from the time they enter the facility until they leave. We actively work to minimize the stress experienced by both staff and inmates. Lower staff stress means reduced absenteeism, greater adherence to policy and procedures, greater collaboration between staff members and less agitation of inmates. Lower inmate stress means reduced risk of violence to staff, fewer inmate crises, reduced medication and health care costs, and reduced suicide attempts and completions.
Our founders are correctional health care experts who have worked in self-operated and privatized correctional health care companies and systems. We actively contribute to the advancement of the field of correctional medical and behavioral health care, and bring that experience and expertise to your facility or system. We will design, develop, implement and monitor innovative solutions to your individual needs.
