Inspectors are giving a passing grade to medical services at a Central Valley state prison.
California's inspector general reported Tuesday that California Correctional Institution is providing adequate care. It says in a report that inmates generally receive appropriate and timely treatment, although emergency services are inadequate.
The prison houses more than 3,600 medium- and maximum-security inmates near Tehachapi, about 100 miles north of Los Angeles.
It's the sixth prison to receive an adequate grade since the inspections started last year.
As one result, a federal court-appointed receiver returned control of medical care at Folsom State Prison to the state corrections department in July.
Inspections found sub-standard care at three other state prisons despite a decade of federal control.
