2. Diving Into The Database Behind The 'Worse For Care' Investigation [Reporter Debrief]

A VPR and Seven Days investigation has uncovered instances of inadequate care, neglect and five untimely deaths at Vermont’s assisted living and residential care homes. Behind that reporting is a database of inspection reports and citations that took months to build. It, and the accompanying website that allows anyone to search citations and inspections at specific eldercare homes, was built by Seven Days data editor Andrea Suozzo.
