They are looking for an RN or LPN with tracheostomy experience to come to their home southwest of Syracuse & care for Eric M-F 7:30 am - 5 pm. Since Eric is now on Medicaid, the RN or LPN needs to be employed by Maxim Healthcare. Eric uses an electrolarynx to speak, has a good mind, & is a fighter to get better for his family.
He hopes to return to farming & being a Syracuse volunteer fireman. I am helping spread the work about the Fass family's needs. I wondered if Scott or you or anyone you know might be interested. I thought it might work for a medical/RN student.

I want to introduce myself; my name is Ashley Wulf; I work at Nebraska Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (NCDHH) as the Omaha Regional Advocate Specialist. I would like to explain a bit about NCDHH. The agency itself provides a variety of services for the Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Hearing loss, Deaf-Blind, and Late Deafness in the State of Nebraska. I focus on the Omaha region which includes several counties such as Boone, Nance, Platte, Polk, Colfax, Butler, Dodge, Saunders, Washington, Douglas, Sarpy, and Cass counties.
The purpose of my reaching out is that NCDHH wants to provide services to anyone who is deaf, hard of hearing, or has any form of hearing loss and collaborate with you. We have some services listed below.
• Advocate Service
- We provide advocacy to our clients and community for various reasons. For example, communication supports, ADA-related, and more.
• Hearing Aid Bank
- We have two hearing aid bank program that focuses on age 19 and up. The program itself helps individuals with low income get a free or reduced-cost, refurbished, hearing aid(s). They only must pay for services related to hearing aids such as hearing tests, fitting and programming, ear molds, etc.
• Nebraska Specialized Telecommunication Equipment Program (NSTEP)
- For resident of Nebraska who has hearing loss get a free amplified phone, caption phone, or cell phone that help them hear better. They also can receive a light signaler for phones and doorbells.
- This equipment is all free and they can also purchase more equipment that is not on our list.
• Equipment Loan Program
- We do provide a free loan program for any of our deaf and hard of hearing communities to test out an amplified phone, caption phone, personal amplifier, pocket talker, signaling device, and a TTY for about 3 months. We use this program often with our consumers to see if they would be interested in moving to the next step of filling out the application for NSTEP or an application for caption phones. We do provide an equipment demo at either your home or at the office to help us decide which phone is the best fit for you or your family.
• Media Loan Program
- It is a program where anyone can borrow some equipment, DVDs, and books on Deaf and Hard of Hearing, interpreting, hearing loss, and more. You can loan it for up to 5 weeks at a time. Only 2 DVDs and/or 2 books may be borrowed at one time. You can look through our Media Center through this link: https://www.nebraska.gov/NCDHH/media_checkout/index.cgi
• Free Training/Presentation
- We provide presentations on our services and training on how to work with deaf and hard-of-hearing communities. We also provided training on deaf and hard of hearing awareness, how to get an interpreter, and how to incorporate Deaf or hard of hearing needs in work and home environments.
I also would like to add the new addition we have in our programs which are called “Rural Communication Access Fund” and Legal Communication Access Fund”. Those are for Nebraskans who are Deaf, DeafBlind, or Hard of Hearing. In April 2022, Governor Ricketts signed LB1014 into law, it’s a bill that provided federal funding to the state of Nebraska that provides communication support in rural areas and legal services. The funding is only available for two fiscal years. I have included the two flyers with additional information.
Rural Communication Access Fund is a reimbursement program for an on-site, in-person licensed sign language interpreter for any appointment in a rural area outside of Lincoln or the Omaha metro area in the State of Nebraska.
Legal Communication Access Fund is a reimbursement program for qualified licensed sign language interpreters (on-site or remote) or any other auxiliary aid service. Auxiliary aid services can be real-time captioning, CART, or personal amplifiers.
I want to mention again that NCDHH can provide a free presentation on our agency’s programs and services to your community or your staff if you are interested.
Let me know if you have any questions and looking forward to hearing from you.

Worst Blood Shortage in Over a Decade!
The American Red Cross is facing a national blood crisis – its worst blood shortage in over a decade, posing a concerning risk to patient care. Doctors have been forced to make difficult decisions about who receives blood transfusions and who will need to wait until more products become available. Blood and platelet donations are critically needed to help prevent further delays in vital medical treatments. Please schedule your blood donation today.

About blood donation
To donate blood, individuals need to bring a blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification that are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also must meet certain height and weight requirements.
Donors can also save up to 15 minutes at the blood drive by completing a RapidPass®. With RapidPass®, donors complete the pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of donation, from a mobile device or computer. To complete a RapidPass®, follow the instructions at RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass or use the Red Cross Blood Donor App.
In most cases, those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine can donate. However, knowing the name of the manufacturer of the vaccine they received is important in determining donation eligibility
Blood drive safety
Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and additional precautions – including face masks for donors and staff, regardless of vaccination status – have been implemented to help protect the health of all those in attendance. Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive.
