The American Correctional Association (ACA) studied the facility’s adherence to new healthcare standards and, aside from three standards which were deemed “not-applicable,” it found the facility 100 percent compliant on the remaining 132 standards.

Kansas employs the private contractor Correct Care Solutions to provide medical and mental healthcare services at all its prison facilities. NCF is staffed by 21 Correct Care Solutions employees, including doctors, nurses, physical therapists and mental health professionals.

“We were the first facility in Kansas to be held to the new healthcare standards, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results,” said NCF Warden Jay Shelton. “It reflects the great service we provide at our facility, which is a reflection on our entire staff.”

The audit, in fact, went beyond the work of Correct Care Solutions, commending the entire NCF staff, citing exemplary food and laundry service, uniformed and non-uniformed staff.  The auditors indicated the staff/inmate interaction was found to be very positive, and the inmates seemed very satisfied with medical services at the facility. Also, they stated the physical plant and grounds were exceptionally clean and well-maintained, and that the staff obviously cares a great deal about its work.  In particular, the auditors said the medical and mental health team was very professional and quite organized in the NCF clinic.
