Hospitals Experiencing Shortages Of IV Bags, Tamiflu

Christopher Peak

This week, a task force formed to address the varying death toll numbers attributed to Hurricane Maria. No problem. Cruz says they used lettuce instead. "It would be great if it was that predictable but we take what we can get. We need to remain agile and keep key personnel informed of what supply we have".

Tufts is making substitutions, like using the IV push method, which was a way to solve for the absence of Mini-Bag Plus.

Grace Cottage is contracted to use Baxter IV products, but "we're very fortunate, where our supply team jumped on it and was very proactive", said Pharmacy Director John Kim.

As of early November, Luciano said, efforts were beginning to shift from the relief mode to the fix phase, with a third phase, that of replenishment, anticipated to get into gear by yearend.

"Since new health care laws have gone into effect, a lot more people are going to hospitals, so the demand for things has gone way up", said Couldry, as he explained what he says is the basis of shortages that now happen year round.

With so many FPL customers and employees having strong ties to Puerto Rico, FPL said in a news release that it "feels a responsibility to help get the lights back on and return a sense of normalcy to the island".

"Maria came through on September 20, a Category 5, and devastated the entire island", she said.

Last month, FPL sent 100 company bucket trucks and electric equipment on three barges from the Port of Fort Pierce to Puerto Rico. Amino acids are critical for patients who are not able to eat and need to receive their nutrition intravenously. Richard Blumenthal said Thursday on the Senate floor, a day after returning from a two-day fact-finding trip to the US territory with fellow Democratic Sen. On the recent visit, he said, the island didn't look much better. The FDA believes the situation will improve in the coming weeks.
