Drug shortage: Ketamine vials


The issue: Due to current shortages of ketamine 2 mL vials (both 10 mg/mL and 50 mg/mL) and uncertainty around future supply of larger vials (10 mg/mL X 20 mL and 50 mg/mL X 10 mL), conservation measures should be implemented to prevent future stock outs. NH has approximately 3 weeks of ketamine 10 mg/mL X 2 mL vials and 4-5 weeks of ketamine 50 mg/mL X 2 mL vials in pharmacy and wardstock areas.

Estimated availability: Unknown at this time for 2 mL vials
