Alert: IV fluid and supply update

April 4, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Michigan Medicine continues to experience shortages of IV solutions, syringes and other supplies as a result of the hurricane that disrupted manufacturing in Puerto Rico last September.

While the supply stream is beginning to see some normalization, the organization has not yet returned to pre-hurricane supply levels. Many IV solutions as well as supplies remain on protected allocation.

Please continue to employ conservation efforts on these items to maximize inventory and reduce costs. Your diligence to reduce usage and protect the current supply is appreciated.

Michigan Medicine continues to monitor these and other shortages closely. Thank you for your patience as the organization navigates these challenges. If you have any questions, contact Sue Friebe at; Janine Lee at; or Katie Barwig at
