MA finalizes rules allowing hospitals to share meds to ease shortages
Massachusetts public health regulators Wednesday gave final approval to regulations that allow hospitals to share medications to address drug shortages worsened by the closure of two specialty pharmacies following last fall's national outbreak of fungal meningitis. The rules adopted by the state's Public Health Council, an appointed board of professors, clinicians, and public health advocates, are more sweeping than emergency measures adopted in November at the height of the meningitis outbreak.
