American emergency rooms are facing critical drug shortages
from Pacific Standard
Over the past 14 years, American emergency rooms have faced more than 600 drug shortages, according to an analysis published last week in Academic Emergency Medicine. Among those shortages were lacks of life-saving, one-of-a-kind drugs such as naloxone, the only medicine capable of reversing a heroin overdose. The analysis is just the latest report to find that America has faced an increasing number of drug shortages since around 2008.
