US Ebola Nurse, Nina Pham settles with Hospital after lawsuit

The nurse, Nina Pham who contracted Ebola while caring for the first person to be diagnosed with disease in the US has settled a lawsuit against a Texas hospital group.


Nina Pham was diagnosed with the deadly virus in 2014 along, with co-worker Amber Vinson, after treating Thomas Eric Duncan at a Dallas medical center. He later died of the disease.

She survived her battle with the disease but filed a lawsuit against Texas Presbyterian Hospital, claiming she became the 'symbol of corporate neglect', as senior officials failed to adequately prepare for the crisis, according to information gathered by Daily Mail.

On Monday, attorneys for Pham announced the settlement with the hospital's parent company Texas Health Resources. Both sides said in a join statement that they would not release the settlement terms.

The nurse said that she was 'the last person' to find out that her patient was positive for Ebola.
