Power steering pump/ replaced but was defective

(1999 Buick LeSabre)
i took my car into pepboys due to the steering being hard,they diagnosed my car and said i needed a new power steering pump so they replaced it and i still had the problem,so they found out that pump was defective,after that the steering didn't work, i am wondering since the rack pinion was not diagnosed to be bad in the first place could the defective part could of caused it to go bad? thank you!
