    The 26-year-old nurse says she has nightmares, body aches and insomnia as a result of contracting the disease from a patient she cared for last fall at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.

    She says the hospital and its parent company, Texas Health Resources, failed her and her colleagues who cared for Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person in the United States diagnosed with Ebola.

    If she also sues any drug maker, that could lead the drug maker to make the defense that many/most of her symptoms are really post-viral in general or post-ebola in particular. That might lead to some unexpected legal precedent, you never know.

    Aside from saying that the hospital was negligent, she does seem to be blaming the Rx rather than post-viral effects.

    I believe this one following was mentioned in a post-ebola thread here, with no experimental drugs being involved.
