Nurse Nina Pham is twenty-six years old.
The article concludes as follows (emphases mine):
...Pham said she has a lot of anxiety about the possible long-term effects of Ebola and the experimental drugs.Does Nurse Pham have good cause to file this lawsuit? If not, why not? If so, how much settlement should Nurse Pham receive?
She’s been told to look out for possible sensory changes, vision loss and organ failure.
Pham previously had complications with high levels of enzymes in her liver, and she’s concerned the problem has reappeared. She said that she can’t even have a glass of wine with dinner now without getting sick.
Some of her hair has started to fall out. A doctor at NIH told her that was caused by Ebola, she said.
“I don’t know if having children could be affected by this, but that’s something I worry about,” Pham said. “Just the uncertainty of it all. And if I do have a health problem in the future, is it related to Ebola or is it something else? How do we know that? ... That’s the scariest part — it’s the uncertainty.”
