UPMC Lawsuit Includes Linen Company

A little while ago, our blog highlighted the recent lawsuit that hit UPMC involving mold and the impact it had on organ donation (our original blog post can be found by clicking this link).  According to updated news reports, the same families of the organ transplant patients are now also including UPMC's linen provider in the lawsuit.  The linen service was added to the lawsuit after the same type of mold that killed the transplant patients was also found at the linen plant. The families' position is that the mold from the hospital (and their linens) resulted in mold in the transplant patients' lungs, which ultimately caused their deaths.  The linen plant has issued a statement regarding their position on the matter as well.  


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.
