Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs)

The Federal Bureau of Prisons is making available information to help meet the requirements of the Correctional Officers Health and Safety Act of 1998, which requires that the Attorney General and the Secretary of Health and Human Services provide guidelines for infectious disease prevention and detection, and treatment of inmates and correctional employees who face exposure to infectious diseases in correctional facilities.

The clinical guidelines referenced below are being made available to the public for informational purposes only. The Bureau does not make any promise or warrant these guidelines for any other purpose, and assumes no responsibility for any injury or damage resulting from the reliance thereof. Proper medical practice necessitates that all cases be evaluated on an individual basis and that treatment decisions be patient-specific.
