A Kaiser Health News investigation found that at least 35 healthcare workers died after Osha received safety complaints about their workplaces. Yet by June 21, the agency had quietly closed almost all of those complaints, and none of them led to a citation or a fine. About 1,300 of the healthcare-related COVID-19 complaints remain open and about 275 fatality investigations are continuing, according to public records.
