Annie Oakley Once Took Hearst Newspapers to Court for Reporting a False Cocaine Addiction

William Randolph Hearst and his editors found this out the hard way when they ran a story that said the already-legendary Annie Oakley was a drug addict and a thief. But Oakley did not reach for her rifle. She took Hearst to court, along with many other newspapers that picked up the story. She wanted to clear her good name.

VACUETTE® VISIO PLUS BLOOD COLLECTION NEEDLE
The VACUETTE® VISIO PLUS Blood Collection Needle with optical venipuncture control is a great help for phlebotomy personnel. The latest innovation from Greiner Bio-One at last brings vision to blood collection. When venipuncture has been carried out successfully, blood flow is visible in the view window in the transparent plastic hub of the needle.
The VISIO PLUS also has advantages for the patient. Movement in the vein during penetration whilst searching for the vein lumen is sometimes painful for the patient: Due to the visible blood flow in the view window, this movement is avoided. The special cut of the needle tip makes penetration of the tissue a lot easier. The new VACUETTE® VISIO PLUS needle thus guarantees pain-free, stress-free venipuncture.

PENBLADE® SAFETY SCALPEL
PROTECT YOUR PEOPLE WITH PENBLADE®
The PenBlade Safety Scalpel has a retractable blade that activates like a click pen and retracts with a simple press of a button.

The release button is positioned near the front of the scalpel where it can be pressed without looking or repositioning the hand. The result is a safety scalpel that doctors and nurses actually like using.
