 Wednesday, February 15, 2017


A third wrongful death lawsuit was filed Tuesday in connection to a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center mold outbreak.
This is the latest death in the wake of five other known deaths since October 2014 linked to heavy mold growth found in the linens at two University of Pittsburgh Medical Center hospitals, according to a report. The newly filed wrongful death lawsuit alleges that a third UPMC hospital, Shadyside Hospital, is a part of the outbreak. Paris Companies was contracted to provide linens for all three of the hospitals.
