HealthDay News via WebMD
New rules intended to create a more level playing field for those awaiting kidney transplants in the U.S. recently went into effect. The changes are designed to lengthen the time younger patients will have working transplants, increase kidney availability and improve the odds for patients with hard-to-match donors, said Dr. Richard Formica, who chairs the kidney transplantation committee of the Organ Procurement & Transplantation Network and United Network for Organ Sharing.

Transplant patients died after receiving kidneys with rare parasitic worm
The Guardian
Two transplant patients died from "unintended consequences of necessary medical intervention" after they were accidentally given kidneys with parasitic worms, a coroner has ruled. Darren Hughes, 42, from Bridgend, and Robert "Jim" Stuart, 67, from Cardiff, underwent the operation at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, last year. They were given organs from an unnamed 39-year-old man from the north of England who had lived rough and had a history of alcohol use of 240 units a week. He was thought at the time to have died from meningitis.

The nursing job outlook for 2015
By Keith Carlson
With 2015 poised to begin, economic forecasts for the new year are beginning to make themselves known, and the employment outlook in healthcare is a crucial aspect of those prognostications.

Our profession continues to see modest growth, and there appears to be no shortage of Americans willing to pursue nursing as a career choice in the 21st century.
