Drugs Shortages on the Mind as Durbin Meets With Hospital Execs

U.S. Senator Dick Durbin says most people would be surprised to learn how often hospitals around the country run short or run out of common prescription drugs. Durbin held a roundtable discussion with local hospital executives in Springfield Monday to discuss his ideas for dealing with the growing number of drug shortages, affecting everything from painkillers to chemotherapy drugs to common prescription treatments for indigestion. He is drafting legislation that would require drug companies to give timely notice of looming shortages, so that the government can track the reasons and provide help in finding solutions.
