Doctors Raise Alarm About Shortages Of Pain Medications

In an informal survey of nearly 2,500 anesthesiologists conducted by the American Society of Anesthesiologists, 98 percent of respondents said they “regularly experience drug shortages at their institutions.” More than 95 percent say those shortages impact the way they treat their patients.
