Hospitals in Nebraska and Iowa See Progress Against Opioid Problem

The focused work by Nebraska hospitals to reduce their opioid use deserves applause.

During 2013-18, Nebraska health systems lowered opioid prescriptions by some 32%.

That’s encouraging progress in heading off the kind of full-blown opioid crisis that unfortunately burdens some other states.

Nationwide, 43,036 Americans died from painkiller overdoses in 2017, a figure exceeding the toll from car-crash fatalities.
