DOVER, Del. (AP) - House lawmakers have unanimously approved a bill reforming a committee charged with monitoring prison health care in Delaware.

The changes approved Tuesday are aimed at improving the work of the Adult Correction Healthcare Review Committee.

The bill places the committee under the oversight of the state Criminal Justice Council and adds the chairs of the House and Senate Corrections committees and the chief of the Bureau of Correctional Healthcare Services as nonvoting members.

Its duties include reviewing medical records of inmates who die in custody, reviewing health care-related grievances filed by inmates, and monitoring inmate hospital admissions and infectious disease diagnoses.
