IV fluid and supplies-Backorders and patietn impact
How many of you are experiencing backorders of fluids and other supplies related to production issues created by the impact of Hurricane Maria on the factories in Puerto Rico? How are you mitigating this potential "disaster"? We have a team working on solutions but it seems with every turn we are met with "backorder" and "unavailable". I understand that the FDA is not allowing supplies to be purchased from vendors via Canada or Australia. Anyone come up with any solutions? We have some workarounds in place but fear that those will be impacted if this shortage continues for any extended period of time.
