Two stories about caregivers were finalists for the 2010 Selden Ring Award for Investigative Reporting:

  • “When Caregivers Harm,” a collaboration between Maloy Moore of the Los Angeles Times and Charles Ornstein and Tracy Weber of ProPublica, exposed significant flaws in the oversight of California nurses with disciplinary problems.
  • Trust Betrayed,” a series produced by Sally Kestin, Peter Franceschina and John Maines of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, revealed inadequate screening of caregivers with criminal histories.

The award, with a $35,000 prize, recognizes published investigative reporting that has brought results.
