Ebola Nurse Nina Pham’s Attorneys Say Hospital Won’t Reveal Details of How Disease Spread

June 10, 2016

(Dallas Morning News) – After the Ebola crisis in Dallas two years ago, Texas Health Resources pledged to share what it learned about how the disease spread from a single patient who died to two nurses who cared for him at its Dallas hospital. The company, which owns Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas hospital where the nurses worked, says it delivered on its promise. But attorneys for one of the nurses, Nina Pham, who is suing THR, say the company isn’t living up to the promise it made to the city, medical community and Congress.
