Most Surprising Allegations in Ebola Nurse Nina Pham’s Lawsuit

(ABC News) – The Dallas nurse who survived Ebola after catching it from her patient last fall may have smiled for the cameras during the harrowing ordeal, but now she’s saying the hospital put its reputation above her needs. Nina Pham, a 26-year-old nurse at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, caught Ebola from her patient, Liberian native Thomas Eric Duncan, who later died from the disease. Although Pham became the face of the hospital’s public relations campaign after the hospital turned into “a ghost town,” she sued its parent company, Texas Health Resources, today in Dallas. She did not specify the damages she’s seeking.
