Former Chadron hospital worker pleads guilty

CHADRON, Neb. (AP) _ A former Chadron Community Hospital worker is scheduled to be sentenced next month after pleading guilty to reduced charges in a drug case.

Reports say Alyssa Eide was arrested in July after calling in a prescription to a local pharmacy, using a false name and a doctor's Drug Enforcement Administration number.

Investigators say they soon discovered that Eide had been using names and information from several doctors so she could obtain prescriptions of an insomnia medication, Ambien.

Eide pleaded guilty after prosecutors dropped two felony charges to misdemeanors. Her sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 17.
