Nurse convicted of spreading hepatitis C in hospitals tries again for compassionate release

Note: To head off confusion when reading this article please recognize that the nurse's surname is Neilson; meanwhile, the appellate judge's surname is Nielson. I had to read the article three times to recognize and comprehend the article.


A former nurse convicted of spreading hepatitis C in two Northern Utah hospitals by diverting injectable narcotics from patients is trying again to get a compassionate early release from her five-year federal prison term.

In a 13-page, handwritten motion to U.S. District Judge Howard Nielson Jr. filed in Salt Lake City on Friday, Elet Neilson claimed she has heightened risk from COVID-19 because she has hepatitis C.

The former emergency room and intensive care registered nurse, who worked at McKay-Dee and Davis hospitals, also said she has rejected an offer of the Moderna vaccine where she is incarcerated, the minimum security Alderson prison camp in West Virginia.

I have had adverse reactions to vaccines in the past, she said. I have no confidence in the substandard medical care (at the prison) to treat such a reaction in an urgent manner.
