Cruel & Unusual [cached]

And inadequate care in the state's prisons poses a growing public health danger to communities outside those prisons, said Dr. Ramesh Vemulapalli, an infectious disease specialist practicing in Dover.Vemulapalli worked at the Delaware Correctional Center near Smyrna for a little more than a year and treated at least 100 HIV-positive inmates before quitting in disgust in 2003. He said inmates moving through cycles of confinement, release and arrest are developing new strains of the virus, and those strains are passed to family members and sexual partners, particularly in the tough neighborhoods of Wilmington.

Vemulapalli countered that Taylor didn't seem to care whether AIDS patients received care.
"Leadership in prisons has no willingness to treat HIV or hepatitis C patients," Vemulapalli said."It begins to trickle down, this attitude of neglect, from supervisors to nurses." Even when AIDS is identified, Vemulapalli said, AIDS drugs are not properly administered..Antiviral drugs must be given at specific times and in strict accordance with a physician's instructions, he noted.He believes his instructions were rarely followed.
Vemulapalli said he would prescribe a regimen of medication and find out later that only half of the drugs had been dispensed.On one occasion, an inmate did not receive any drugs. "By not giving the medication on time," he said, "they're making the patient's condition worse."

AIDS epidemic raging behind bars [cached]

The last AIDS doctor employed in the state's prisons -- Dr. Ramesh Vemulapalli of Dover, an infectious disease specialist -- quit in 2003.

All four classes of antiviral treatments are available in Delaware prisons, said Dr. Vemulapalli, an infectious disease specialist who worked a little more than a year at the Delaware Correctional Center near Smyrna.But inmates, he said, did not always receive them. "Most patients who come to the hospital from the Department of Corrections are generally far too advanced," said Vemulapalli, who is now in private practice in Dover."I've seen several cases from the prison -- all patients who have died -- that didn't get referred to the hospital at the appropriate time.They're not providing adequate care." Vemulapalli, who worked for Tucson-based FCM, claims company owner Kastre ordered him to treat AIDS or hepatitis C -- but not both, even though many patients have both.The reason, Vemulapalli said he was told, is that "it was too expensive to treat both."
In the Smyrna prison, which houses about 2,400 inmates, orders for medical tests on inmates were sometimes ignored, said Vemulapalli, who said he treated 100 AIDS-positive inmates there.He had to get permission for testing from Kastre. "I had to clear everything through her," he said.
