Description

THE INVISIBLE PATIENTS tells the story of Jessica Macleod, a nurse practitioner, and four homebound patients she cares for in Evansville, Indiana. Together they put a human face on some of the most urgent healthcare issues facing our nation, from the living conditions of the elderly poor and end-of-life care, to the soaring costs of hospitalization, complexity of insurance and overprescription of opiates. Their stories reveal the emotional as well as financial burdens created by our current system, and cry out for solutions. THE INVISIBLE PATIENTS pulls back the curtain on a hidden, vulnerable population, whose circumstances ask us to wrestle with not just healthcare policy, but as importantly, how to mend today’s fraying social fabric.

"An achingly intimate portrait of a growing problem, The Invisible Patients makes you a fly on the wall in the lives of people falling through the cracks of the American healthcare system."  Sam Watermeier - NUVO

“…compassionately and with dignity takes us inside the most vulnerable moments of these lives yet does so without exploiting them for the sake of "entertainment."  Richard Propes – The Independent Critic

"... illuminates the challenges of healthcare for the home-bound... with a delicate balance of gallows humor and the grace with which we would all hope to face death.”   Nick Rogers - The Film Yap
