KALB report “Since January, the Journal of the American Medical Association has reported a nationwide shortage of intravenous solutions, used to treat an array of medical conditions. Like many other healthcare facilities across the U.S., Country Clinic in Simmesport, Louisiana hasn’t been able to get the IV solutions they need to treat patients. Dr. Steve Kuplesky and his wife Rose, a registered nurse and BSN, run the clinic, and they’re pushing for a quick solution to the shortage.”
