Subject: Nursing Home Scandal

An 18-month IndyStar investigation found that Indiana's nursing home system is profoundly broken. It's expensive. Inefficient. Ripe for fraud. Poorly staffed. And when the coronavirus pandemic struck, it was tragically unprepared.
The series, “Careless,” found that county hospitals across the state had bought up nearly all of Indiana’s 534 nursing homes, at least on paper, to access enhanced Medicaid funds available to government-owned homes. But much of the money – more than $1 billion – never reached the vulnerable nursing home residents for whom it was intended.
