How long has it been since the repair and approximately how much coolant has been added since then?
If you ran the engine until it died with the coolant loss it is VERY LIKELY that you have a blown head gasket or warped cylinder head. At this time, I recommend to take it back promptly to the dealer and explain the situation. To me, it seems that if they were responsible for leaving a hose loose that they should be held accountable for the repairs.
Being that you let it run until it shut down leaves you partly responsible for this failure. The temperature gauge and/or warning lamp would have illuminated well before the engine would have shut down. It would have been highly recommended for you to pull over and shut down the engine as soon as the warning lamp and chime activated to avoid engine damage.
At this point I would take it back as soon as possible before any further damage can occur. Since it should still be under warranty you should have little or no issues in getting it covered under the warranty.
