(Business Insider) On October 16, Texas Health Resources released a grainy video of Nina Pham, a nurse at one of the company's Dallas hospitals who had contracted Ebola while caring for the first person to receive a diagnosis of the virus in the US.
Her patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, had died about a week earlier, two days before Pham woke up with a fever.
In the video, Pham, 26, is sitting up in a hospital bed, quiet at first.

"Thanks for being part of the volunteer team to take care of our first patient," says a male voice, off-camera. " It means a lot. "
Now, in a lawsuit filed Monday in Dallas, Pham alleges that the video was an "ambush" and that her Ebola infection was a direct result of the "gross negligence" of her employer, Texas Health Resources.
