NEW YORK — A private nurse assigned to Andy Warhol has been barred from caring for patients at New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, the hospital said.
"New York Hospital's review of the medical record raised questions concerning the overall performance of Mr. Warhol's private duty nurse," spokeswoman Myrna Manner said Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the New York State Health Department said it was investigating whether something could have been done to save the life of the pop artist.
Warhol died of a heart attack at New York Hospital on Feb. 22, one day after undergoing a gallbladder operation. The results of an autopsy by Chief Medical Examiner Elliot Gross have not yet been released.
