BOLOGNA, Italy, Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Italian police said they arrested a nurse with the National Health System accused of using bogus excuses to work only six days in nine years.

Police said the 45-year-old Bologna woman, whose name was not released, used work-avoiding "tricks" including two false pregnancies and obtaining fraudulent sick notes from doctors, ANSA reported Wednesday.

Authorities said the woman is accused of defrauding the state.
