DALLAS (AP) — A local media report says a Texas hospital system has addressed several claims in a lawsuit filed by a nurse who contracted Ebola while caring for the first person in the U.S. diagnosed with the deadly disease.

The Dallas Morning News cited an email by the CEO of Texas Health Resources sent to employees Monday, responding to accusations in 26-year-old Nina Pham's lawsuit.

Pham's lawsuit questions the veracity of a company official's testimony in a congressional hearing about the training of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas to manage Ebola. She also accuses the company of invading her privacy.

The email says the testimony was factual and accurate. It adds the company had Pham's consent to share information about her release, including a video of her in her hospital bed.
