UPMC tries to separate from lawsuit over death of patient

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, June 5, 2009

In an attempt to remove itself from liability for a patient's death, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center claimed in a court filing that it doesn't run hospitals or employ any healthcare professionals. The family of Rose Lee Diggs, an 89-year-old Homewood woman who wandered from her room and died on the roof of UPMC Montefiore in December, sued the health system claiming its negligence caused the woman's death.
