Potassium Chloride Injection Shortage UPDATE 7.30.18

Potassium Chloride Injection Shortage – although product is still in short supply, Centegra pharmacies have been successful in obtaining supply.  The manufacturer expects release on 8/23/18.  At this time, we estimate we have at least a 4-week supply and can now begin using without restriction.

DOBUTamine Shortage 11.15.17

Physicians,

There is a nationwide shortage on DOBUTamine 500 mg/250 mL IVPB.  At present consumption, we expect CHS has about a 12 day supply.  We may continue to receive backordered quantity, but we cannot rely on this.  Please be aware of this shortage and consider alternatives as our supply depletes.

Thank you,
