Nurse Nina Pham settled her lawsuit Monday against Texas Health Resources, owner of the hospital where she contracted Ebola while caring for the first person in the United States diagnosed with the deadly disease.
The deal was signed exactly two years after Pham was declared free of Ebola, although she still has health problems likely related to the disease and experimental treatments.
THR and Pham’s attorneys Charla Aldous and Brent Walker released a brief joint statement to The Dallas Morning News: “Texas Health Resources and Ms. Pham have resolved the pending lawsuit, and wish the best for each other going forward. All parties have agreed the terms of the resolution are confidential and will not make additional statements or grant media interviews.”
The terms of the settlement were not disclosed. But a typical agreement could include future health care and possibly millions of dollars.
