IV Drug Shortages Are Making the News

The Washingtonian ran a comprehensive and well-researched article that empathetically shares the patient perspective.

An article on "NBC News” highlights how zinc shortages have severely affected babies in the NICU.

We applaud the health system noted in an article in Pharmacy Practice News for stepping forward and openly addressing a medication error directly related to drug shortages.

The FDA press release outlines a plan to allow the importation of trace elements and phosphate injection from Norway. For now the supply is limited, but we understand more will be on the way.

The American Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (A.S.P.E.N.) notes that there are key differences between the products currently used in the U.S. and those that will be imported.
