Is there a "statue of limitations" when it comes to how long a creditor may harrass you when the deceased had an insolvent estate?

In Ohio, is there a statue of limitations on how long a creditor can harrass you or contact you when the deceased had an insolvent estate? My sister died in Feb 2012, had an insolvent estate, and no probate was done (consulted a lawyer who said if there is no property to probate, no probate should be done). She was on SSI and a small pension. I sent letters in response to all creditors informing them of this matter (no money to pay bills). Most have stopped sending letters, but the medical providers keep sending letters asking for payment. So how long can this go on? What steps should I take to tell them to stop? My sister was solely responsible for her liabilities, not me. Thank you for your help.
