DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas hospital where a man died of an Ebola infection has issued a comprehensive defense of its practices in the case.

The statement issued late Thursday by Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas also criticizes a nurses’ group that had accused the hospital of exposing nurses to the deadly virus.

The hospital contends it followed protocols and practices based on guidelines and recommendations of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

National Nurses United had accused the hospital of sloppy procedures that exposed nurses to disease. The hospital statement, while not referring to the union by name, criticized “third parties who don’t know our hospital, our employees and who were not present when the events occurred.”
