DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
The defendants failed to establish their prima facie entitlement to judgment as a matter of law. Accordingly, the defendants' motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint was properly denied (see Alvarez v Prospect Hosp., 68 NY2d 320, 324).
SKELOS, J.P., RITTER, DILLON, CARNI and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
