Nurse Nina Pham Still Working to Settle Ebola Lawsuit: Attorneys

Two years after the Ebola crisis hit Dallas, one of the nurses infected is still pursuing a lawsuit against Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where she worked.

Nina Pham filed the lawsuit in March 2015. She says the hospital's lack of training, poor equipment and violations of her privacy after she was infected are a symbol of corporate neglect.

NBC 5's media partners at The Dallas Morning News reported Monday that Pham's attorneys are close to reaching a settlement. But when NBC 5 reached out to those attorneys, they said that no settlement has been signed.

Pham says the hospital posted a video of her sick in the hospital without her consent, and she says she has suffered hair loss, physical pain and insomnia since recovering from Ebola.

The man she was treating, Thomas Duncan, died from the Ebola virus while in the hospital.

According to The Dallas Morning News, Pham is still on the hospital's payroll.
