Louisville Metro Corrections says six medical care providers at the jail have resigned after a probe into the deaths of two inmates.
The Courier-Journal reports the internal investigation found that the workers may have contributed to the deaths. All six worked for Tennessee-based Corizon Inc., a contractor that provides medical care at the jail.
Corrections Director Mark Bolton told the newspaper on Wednesday that the police department's death investigations were taking longer than usual and prompted him to take action. After looking at records, Bolton said he concluded that the inmates should have been taken to a doctor sooner.
The company said in a written statement that it is "committed to providing quality heathcare" and is continuously trying to improve.
