DALLAS — A nurse who contracted Ebola two years ago while caring for the first person to be diagnosed in the U.S. with the disease settled a lawsuit Monday against the parent company of the Dallas hospital where she worked.

Attorneys for Nina Pham announced the settlement with Texas Health Resources. They and the company said in a joint statement that terms will not be disclosed.

Pham contracted Ebola in the fall of 2014 while caring for Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.

In her lawsuit, Pham said the “sum total” of information she was given to protect herself after being told she would be treating a patient suspected of having Ebola was “what her manager ‘Googled’ and printed out from the Internet.”
