You need to retain a civil rights attorney in your area. Malpractice claims for inmates for improper medical care are usually filed as 1983 actions under the Civil Rights Act. It sounds like he may have a valid claim, so I would contact someone on his behalf to look into a civil rights claim.

Contact the local county Bar Association for a referral. I would also call the American Civil Liberties Union(ACLU). Since this is a County facility, you may want to writ to your elected officials as well as the County Supervisor. While there may not be a whole lot of concern for the healthcare provided to inmates, the law requires people such as your husband to reasonable and ethical medical care- which he has clearly been deprived of!
