How would you decide whether the conditions of a prison constitute “cruel and unusual” punishment?

If  the conditions of a prison were starving inmates, not allowing them to bath, not allowing them the right to medical attention, a prison that is full of rats and other vermin’s and touring them for simple crimes than I would say that was “cruel and unusual punishment. I also think that a officer using excessive force is considered cruel and unusual punishment like striking an inmate that is hand cuffed both hands and feet that pose no immediate threat to the officer.
