This comes one day after her colleague Amber Vinson, the second nurse diagnosed with the deadly virus, was flown to Emory Hospital in Atlanta.
On Thursday, the Head of Dallas Health Presbyterian Hospital Daniel Varga testified before Congress via Skype.
He apologized for initially sending home their first Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, who died last week.
“We made mistakes. We did not correctly diagnose his symptoms as those of Ebola and we are deeply sorry,” says Varga.
The CDC is admitting they gave Amber Vinson permission to fly to Ohio after she helped treat Duncan and reported an elevated temperature.
