Lawyers for nurse Nina Pham appeared Monday morning before Dallas County Judge Martin Hoffman and announced they were cancelling hearings set for today because they had reached a settlement. The papers are expected to be filed within the next day.
Pham sued Texas Health Resources after she came down with ebola while treating patient Thomas Duncan two years ago.
The suit alleged that Presbyterian Hospital Dallas neither trained its staff to handle ebola, nor did the hospital have the proper equipment to handle a patient with the deadly disease.READ MORE: North Texas Congressman Jake Ellzey Sworn In After Upsetting Trump-Backed Susan Wright
Thomas Duncan eventually died from the ebola infection. Both Pham and another nurse survived after receiving extensive medical care.
Whether this concludes the entire lawsuit or part of it have yet to be made public.
