Hartford Lawmakers: More Aid Needed For Displaced Puerto Ricans

Puerto Rico launches bid to become 51st state

"We'll pay for your hotel in CT, and we'll work on your case", Hartford City Council member, Wildaliz Bermudez, said.

It's no secret flu season is in full-swing in the USA and for Wisconsin, experts said we're right on track with the rest of the country. The hurricane cut power to those manufacturing plants, and they are still struggling to get back to full production mode. "I don't foresee any of our patients being affected by this", stated Dr. Bunch.

But Dr. Bunch said that thanks to his team of hard working nurses and pharmacists, they've been able to find ways to provide the same medical treatments for patients - even now with a smaller supply of IV.

According to a statement emailed to the Globe, Mercy Hospital Joplin checks inventory levels on a daily basis, and when potential for a shortage appears imminent it moves to another supplier.

Hospitals have been substituting pills for IV-administered drugs when possible, changing dosing schedules or injecting drugs directly into a vein, what's called IV push.

"We have been told that it will probably last through the entirety of 2018", said Reeves.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said last week it believes shortages will start to ease over the next few weeks, but stressed "the production situation in Puerto Rico remains fragile".

The shortage has forced hospitals to use bigger, less convenient bags. As Puerto Rico's power grid is restored, Baxter International factories, which make the nutrient solutions and saline bags, was reconnected before Christmas. "Nationally, everybody was doing the same thing, so as soon as we switched it from one product to the next, that quickly became a shortage in its own right", Britton added. "That set off red flags like 'what happens if the large bags disappear?'" Britton said.
