Roundup of recently introduced Legislation

January 23, 2014

LINCOLN--Dozens more legislative bills and resolutions piled up on Nebraska lawmakers' plates this week. Here are some highlights: LB861 by Sen. Russ Karpisek of Wilber aims to prevent the sales of e-cigarettes to minors. Nebraska has no law preventing the sale of e-cigarettes to those younger than 18, but many stores refuse to sell them to minors anyway. If passed, the punishment for selling e-cigarettes to minors would be the same as for selling cigarettes, cigars or chewing tobacco.

Diverse donor base critical for adequate blood supply

January 20, 2014

February is Black History Month, and in the spirit of Dr. Charles Drew, the first medical director of an American Red Cross blood bank, the Red Cross reminds eligible donors of the importance of a diverse blood supply.

Patients are less likely to have complications from blood donated by someone with the same ethnicity. Prior to transfusion, blood type and Rh factor are matched. Oftentimes additional red cell markers in donated blood must be matched as well. Such markers are determined by ethnicity and best found in a diverse donor base.
