Three months ago, she said, the hospital could get 20 percent to 30 percent less of those three drugs than it wanted. Now, it’s 50 percent to 60 percent less. There are plenty of opioid pills, but they are often not appropriate for hospitalized patients or those in hospice. Erin Fox, senior director of drug information at University of Utah Health, said the hard-to-get drugs are “absolutely essential, and hospitals use a very, very large amount of these.” The shortage stems from manufacturing problems and may be exacerbated by government regulations meant to prevent street sales of addictive drugs. A coalition of medical organizations on Tuesday urged the Drug Enforcement Administration to loosen its rules to help combat the shortages. The letter, signed by the American Hospital Association, the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices, raised the specter of postponed or canceled surgeries. “In some cases,” it said, “this could prove life-threatening to the patient.” Small syringes and vials are in most demand, because they are safest and have long shelf lives. Pharmacies can split larger vials in a clean room, but drugs may be wasted and the resulting syringes expire much more quickly than the preloaded syringes that are in short supply. Health officials said that so far, they have been able to avoid mistakes and keep patients’ pain under control, but Louis Iobbi, pharmacy director at Doylestown Hospital, said he is worried. The hospital has enough opioids to care for patients for the next 2½ to three months, he said, but Pfizer, the dominant manufacturer, has told health-care providers that “some of this stuff might not be available until July, and that’s a nightmare.” Pfizer has said its “full recovery date” is in early 2019, the letter to the DEA said. Donna Curry, manager for VNA Philadelphia inpatient unit, and Stanley Savinese, chief medical officer of VNA Philadelphia, look at a package containing morphine at their facility. At the Visiting Nurse Association of Greater Philadelphia’s inpatient hospice, medical director Stanley Savinese said his morphine supply will last about two weeks. His supplier can find enough hydromorphone to get the hospice through March. The hospice is switching patients to oral drugs whenever possible and may soon have to rely more on suppositories. “The staff is not that crazy about that, and neither are our patients or the families,” he said. Terri Maxwell, vice president of clinical education at Philadelphia-based Enclara Pharmacia, which supplies medications to the VNA and other hospices, said her company was asking clients to “ration” injectable morphine and hydromorphone. Enclara can get the liquid morphine that caregivers give hospice patients at home, but people in inpatient hospice often need stronger stuff. “We have been strongly recommending that people reserve [injectables] for only people who have intractable and rapidly escalating pain,” she said.
