Bernie Madoff’s prison medical records reveal he had his toes amputated before he died and was so sick with renal failure that he was hallucinating and screamed at doctors ‘Help! I hate this f****** place!’

  • Madoff died in April aged 82 at the Federal Medical Center in Butner, NC 
  • He’d been in prison since 2009, when he was caught operating the largest Ponzi scheme in history 
  • His health deteriorated significantly in prison and by the end, he was ‘confused’ 
  • He had two of his toes amputated in March because they were infected with gangrene, a common side effect of renal failure

  • He once ‘fell’ on a water fountain in 2009 and broke his nose and one of his ribs
