Federal prosecutors say a former nurse charged with infecting seven people with hepatitis C at an Ogden hospital is one of more than 400 people across the country accused in health care fraud and opioid scams.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for Utah said Thursday that 50-year-old Elet Neilson spread the virus by stealing narcotic drugs and injecting herself before injecting patients.
