    A report's found Corrections didn't give a diabetic prison inmate necessary medical treatment

    A report's found Corrections didn't give a diabetic prison inmate necessary medical treatment


    The Deputy Health and Disability Commissioner's report says Corrections didn't administer the woman prescribed pain medication.

    It also failed to prioritise a consultation so a doctor could assess her condition.

    The woman ended up in hospital with a viral exacerbation of asthma.

    The case has been referred to determine if legal proceedings should be taken.
