Nina Pham, the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas nurse who contracted Ebola while caring for a Liberian man who died from the disease, intends to file suit on Monday against the hospital. In an interview Sunday with the Dallas Morning News, Pham said she’s will file suit claiming the hospital’s lack of proper equipment and training, and violations of her right to privacy made her “a symbol of corporate neglect — a casualty of a hospital system’s failure to prepare for a known and impending medical crisis.” She told the newspaper that’s she has had lasting side effects, even though she is considered Ebola free. A Texas Health Resources spokesman declined to address Pham’s allegations when contacted by the Morning News, but he did tell the newspaper that Pham and the hospital could resolve the issues through “constructive dialogue.” You can read the full Morning News report here.
Who will replace Warren Buffett? Is this a clue?
The guessing game of who will succeed Warren Buffett as chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has been a constant source of fodder for business speculation. A letter from Vice Chairman Charles Munger to shareholders may have given a clue. Munger said that reinsurance head Ajit Jain and energy chief Greg Abel would be worthy successors, according to media reports. Matthew Rose, executive chairman of Fort Worth-based BNSF Railway, has been one of the names mentioned as a possible successor for years. The guessing games goes on.
