Hurricane Sandy Causing Propofol Shortage In Hospitals
NEW YORK, N.Y.--The aftermath of Hurricane Sandy is showing up in hospitals in the form of a Propofol shortage.
Doctors are having a harder time getting their hands on the drug that's used to sedate patients.
Manufactures say there was already a national shortage but it's grown because Sandy threw off production.
So far Charlotte is in the clear. CMC says they have a large supply. The shortage is expected to last through December.
