The prison healthcare setting is a unique healthcare environment. Prison healthcare, although similar in many ways to the acute care setting, has many important and potentially risky differences. Efforts to reduce risk have been intensified; the National Commission of Correctional Healthcare has taken an important leadership role in developing and promoting safe work practices for CHCWs [72, 73]. Many opportunities for improvements exist, and the challenge will be to further reduce risk through the development and implementation of effective risk-control strategies that are tailored to this special healthcare setting.
