A Texas hospital and a nurse who became infected with Ebola while caring for a patient have settled a lawsuit.
Nina Pham sued Texas Health Resources, the parent company of the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, in March 2015. The lawsuit said the company disregarded warnings about the disease, failed to adequately train and equip her to treat Ebola, and violated her privacy, CNN reported.
Pham and another nurse contracted Ebola in October 2014 after treating a man who developed symptoms after arriving in Dallas from Liberia. Pham’s diagnosis was the first known transmission of Ebola in the United States.
