Tearful Nina Pham Departs Dallas Hospital
Nina Pham, a Dallas nurse who contracted Ebola while treating Thomas Eric Duncan, who died from the virus, was relocated to a hospital in Maryland on October 16. Pham had been treated at the hospital at which she worked, Texas Health Presbyterian, since contracting Ebola. She traveled by jet to the National Institutes of Health clinical center in Bethesda. Her condition was described as “good”.
In a video released by Texas Health Presbyterian, Dr Gary Weinstein, her treating physician, thanks Pham for being “part of the volunteer team to take care of our first [Ebola] patient”. Credit: YouTube/Texas Health Resources
