Abstract
The liver is an organ in your body that helps to break down and digest the food you eat, cleans your blood, and fights infection. Hepatitis B is a virus that attacks the liver. “Hepatitis” means swelling of the liver. Hepatitis B can cause serious liver problems, including liver damage, liver failure, and liver cancer. People with kidney disease who may need dialysis or a kidney transplant in the future, have a higher chance of getting Hepatitis B. The best way to prevent Hepatitis B is to get vaccinated. This pamphlet explains what the hepatitis B vaccine is, possible side effects, and who should not get the vaccine.

Abstract
If you use home parenteral nutrition (HPN), it is very important to be prepared for an emergency (like a weather-related emergency or a natural disaster). It is important to plan before an emergency to make sure you will be able to keep doing your therapy without any interruptions. This pamphlet explains what an HPN emergency plan is, what emergency supplies you should have ready, HPN during a power outage, how to clean your hands with sanitizer, how to run your HPN when your pump battery has run out (the gravity method), and HPN during an evacuation. The pamphlet also includes a Health Emergency Card, where you can write down your medical information, emergency contacts, type of vascular access and location, and your HPN order. Keep a copy of your Emergency Health Card in your HPN emergency pack at all times. Space to write down your individual flow rates for pump tubing via gravity is also included.

Newborn eye infections caused by gonorrhea and chlamydia are rare, but they are serious. They must be treated quickly to avoid long-term complications. This pamphlet explains how you can prevent your newborn from getting an eye infection caused by gonorrhea or chlamydia, how to know if your baby has an eye infection, and what to do if you think your newborn may have an eye infection.
