      Too Many Rights for Prisoners. In reaction to a wave of prisoner lawsuits, the United States Supreme Court decided in Turner v. Safley () that, due to security needs of prisons, a lower standard of review for the constitutionality of prison regulations was acceptable. 15 Prisoners' rights must be balanced against the needs and safety of the institution that holds them, and general safety. Ruling: While typically a correctional system or institution may not be directly involved in malpractice issues, a given case might entail issues of negligence in hiring or assigning a doctor to duties in a prison or jail and might become a civil rights issue.

        The prison has reported prisoner infections — all but one from an outbreak first confirmed Aug. 5 — and four staff cases. Luce County, where the prison is located, has had four cases.   Finally, detailed analysis of the moral bases for particular rights relating to prison conditions covers areas such as: health, solitary confinement, recreation, work, religious observance, library access, the use of prisoners in research and the disenfranchisement of prisoners.
