Performance Audit of the Efforts to Identify, Prevent, and Treat Infectious Diseases by the Department of Corrections , Report No. 12191, November 1993

  • Although the Department's workload report provides Department managers with information on the prevalence of infectious diseases, the information is of limited usefulness in identifying whether infectious diseases are spreading within the prison system. Furthermore, the Department has not established sufficient controls to ensure the accuracy and reliability of infectious disease workload data or HIV-and AIDS- related expenditures data.
  • The Department has not developed procedures to determine whether all inmates receive AIDS education as required by statute. In addition, the Department could improve its program by ensuring that training materials are developed to meet the information needs of inmates. The Department should also assess its AIDS education program to determine whether the program is achieving the purposes for which it was intended.
