Medical Indifference and negligence
We bring medical indifference claims against Rikers Island all the time. But it is rarely shown in the media. I'm happy this is being shown in the media as it proves our assertions that there is large scale medical negligence and indifference on the Island. Note I am not complaining about the medical staff themselves, I'm certain they are competent and professional. They are likely overworked, understaffed, underutilized, and likely under-supported.
