UPMC Sued For Transplant Deaths

Over the past year, UPMC was under fire for conditions in the transplant program in their hospital.  A recent lawsuit was pursued by the family of a transplant patient from Ohio who died during a mold outbreak.  The patient, who had received a heart transplant, was one of at least three patients who died soon after receiving the new organ.  The CDC weighed in on the occurrences and reported that a specially ventilated room in the hospital's cardiothoracic intensive care may have caused the mold issues.  

Medical malpractice is hard to prove in the legal world, but negligent doctors and hospitals should be held accountable when failing to properly diagnose or implement improper treatments that lead to severe injuries. Pain, suffering, medical bills (both past and future) and a lost earnings are just a portion of the hardships that patients have to endure as a result of medical malpractice. If you feel that you or a loved one has been a victim of hospital negligence that led to severe injury, please contact our law office at 814-946-4100 for a consultation with Attorney Doug Stoehr.
