Lawyer Alleges Mold at Pittsburgh Hospital Led to Patient’s Death

sterile operating room

The family of a kidney transplant patient who died last week is planning to file a lawsuit against University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC).

Daniel Krieg, 56, of St. Marys, underwent a kidney transplant last year at UPMC. In March this year, he suffered from pneumonia and had to go back to the hospital where he was put in a specially-ventilated “negative pressure room.”

According to his attorney, Krieg died after he contracted a fungal infection due to time spent in the ventilated room.

However, the hospital administration said in a statement, “We are deeply saddened by the loss of Mr. Krieg. His death was not directly related to the fungal infection, but rather can be attributed to pneumonia.”

Florida State University Students Find Mold in Dorm Rooms

Students at Florida State University, who returned to their dorms this week, have reported mold in the rooms.

According to FSU freshman Stefanie Prieto, “I came back on Sunday night, and the moment I walked in it just smelled disgusting and there was like mold all over the floors, all over the furniture, all over my items…The air quality definitely makes people cough, I know when I moved in over the fall, I got bronchitis because of the air quality, and I know people are still getting sick now after they moved in from winter break.”

The university housing department said they discovered the mold in about 50 rooms just before the students returned from winter break. According to Director Shannon Staten, “We started immediately with staff and cleaned the rooms we found, and made sure we were getting in there and trying to get it cleared up.”
