Important Drug Shortage Notification

Important Drug Shortage

Effective Immediately.

Due to a shortage of D50 syringes D10W/250ml will now be used to replace D50 for correction of hypoglycemia.

D10W will replace D50 as boxes are restocked until the remaining D50 is gone.

This change will occur at SMJH Pharmacy and UVA

The D10 is intended for use in place of D50.

It is not intended to be used for medication mixing.

Medications used to create infusions/drips will be done in the usual manner.
