Puerto Rico hurricane may cause shortage of hospital IV bags
Friday, 13 October 2017 A key U.S. maker of hospital products says it expects a temporary shortage of small saline bags because of the hurricane that hit Puerto Rico. The hurricane wiped out the island's electrical grid, shutting down Baxter's three Puerto Rico factories for several days. The Deerfield, Illinois-based company is still ramping up production by using generators.
