A worker at the Life Care Center in Kirkland, Wash., looks through a storage container filled with wheelchairs, walkers, and other mobility devices, Thursday, April 2, 2020. Federal authorities on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, proposed a fine of more than $600,000 for the Seattle-area nursing home connected to at least 40 deaths from the new coronavirus. State regulators and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services conducted an inspection of the facility on March 16, 2020, and found serious infractions that they said placed residents in immediate danger, but a follow-up inspection found that Life Care had at least partially fixed the most serious problems, and Wednesday's announcement said the fine could be adjusted up or down based on how Life Care continues to correct the remaining problems.
