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

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

Pham contracted Ebola in 2014 while caring for Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. Duncan was visiting Texas from Liberia and died days after arriving in Dallas. Pham and another nurse who contracted Ebola survived.

Pham said in her lawsuit that the hospital was unprepared to treat Ebola cases. She also said she worried about her long-term health.
