According to The Wall Street Journal, "the availability of saline IV bags has plummeted" and "some hospital officials said they have only a day or two of supplies".

National numbers show a shortage of IV fluid bags.

"There are people that are still suffering in Puerto Rico, and we wanted to raise awareness about that need", said German DuBois, executive director of Puerto Rico Hope Murals, "and leverage our artists as a platform to talk about the history and the culture of Puerto Rico and why we all need to still be on deck and involved with raising funds for the ongoing relief efforts". They will be joining hundreds of other workers sent to the island to help people in desperate need of electricity.

Hospitals have been substituting pills for IV-administered drugs when possible, changing dosing schedules or injecting drugs directly into a vein, what's called I.V. push. No problem. Cruz said they used lettuce instead. That industry has a "significant presence" in Puerto Rico, and the "disruption ... has had ramifications for patients both on the island and throughout the US", the federal Food and Drug Administration said in a November 17 announcement.

We've had to make some adjustments, but nothing that affects patients or that patients would even notice.

All of the island's 3.5 million residents lost power due to Hurricane Maria in late September.

Baxter Pharmaceuticals produces more than 40% of all IV bags. "This is making it harder to get power and reliable communication, which are critical to daily life, back in place". To see more, visit WNPR News.

Eric Shover, C.H. Robinson's vice president of the Americas, said his company has focused on sending cargo planes from Miami International Airport to San Juan Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport with critical supplies such as generators, hygienic kits, food, water, ice, cots and materials for building bathroom and shower facilities.

JOEL CRUZ: You know, they come to the U.S. And we don't mind celebrating having Santa Claus.

"The first time, what we saw was whole areas destroyed, towns completely decimated, community centers wiped away and schools crushed", he said.

"People are looking to leave the island and reside somewhere permanently", Kenny Montijo, CEO of the United Way of Lebanon County, said.

"We're not out of the woods, but it's improved", UVM's Miceli said.
