Aneri Pattani — Reporting Road Trip

In December, KHN correspondent Aneri Pattani hit the road to report from inside a nursing home that had been largely locked down for months. Such access is something many journalists had not been able to secure throughout the pandemic. This video is about her journey, and what it took to keep a high-risk, older population safe while reporting.

A month of scheduling and one rapid covid test later, Pattani’s story from the Brian Center Health & Retirement/Cabarrus in North Carolina reveals the nuances of vaccine hesitancy among some nursing home staffers.
