DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, with costs.
The defendants New York University Medical Center and Daniel Rauch made a prima facie showing of their entitlement to judgment as a matter of law (see Social Services Law § 413[a]; § 419; Goldberg v Edson, 41 AD3d 428; Rine v Chase, 309 AD2d 796). In opposition, the plaintiffs failed to raise a triable issue of fact.
PRUDENTI, P. J., DILLON, ENG and ROMAN, JJ., concur.
