CITY HALL EYEBALL: Drug shortage

Posted By on Wed, Apr 4, 2012 at 10:31 AM

Like a third-world horror tale, Spokane's ambulances aren't currently stocked with all their emergency medications.

The fault, according to a Spokane city press release, is a confluence of national conditions: supply disruption from last year's tsunami, quality-control problems at factories, and lack of raw materials. 

We've got some questions in for the fire department, like what drugs are they low on (or lacking), and will report back soon with more info. 

In the meantime, check out our November story on prescription drugs, "Shorting Out," and the Food and Drug Administration's drug shortage list here.
