Description

Gasping for Care exposes a daunting reality for thousands of Indiana’s most medically fragile residents: the home nursing care they need to survive is simply not available.

WTHR’s investigation highlights the state’s repeated failures to provide the home nursing services it approved and funded for vulnerable families. Through powerful interviews and dogged reporting, WTHR’s investigative documentary explores the devastating impact of Indiana’s chronic home nursing shortage, as well as the complex and controversial decisions that helped create the crisis. It reveals how state leaders pledged to tackle the problem while they simultaneously raided hundreds of millions of dollars earmarked for home healthcare to spend on unrelated projects.
