Abstract

Prisons were never meant to be nursing homes; and yet, increasingly, they are asked to perform this function. They do so ineffectively, at a great cost to community’s health, finances, safety, and undermine the criminal justice system’s ideals of rehabilitating and reintegrating people into society.
