15 Deaths Have been Attributed to Shortages of Mainstay Medications http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/23/hospital-drug-shortages-deadly-costly_n_977743.html
A growing crisis in the availability of drugs for chemotherapy, infections and other serious ailments is endangering patients and forcing hospitals to buy from secondary suppliers at huge markups because they can't get the medications any other way
.......reasons include theft of prescription drugs from warehouses or during shipment, as well as the "gray market" vendors who buy scarce drugs from small regional wholesalers, pharmacies or other sources and then sell them to hospitals at many times the normal price. These sellers may not be licensed, authorized distributors.
In addition, many companies have stopped making generic injected drugs because the profit margins are slim. Producing them is far more expensive than stamping out pills, and it takes about three weeks to produce a batch. Making things worse, companies don't have to notify customers or the FDA that they've stopped making a medicine. That means neither FDA nor competitors can fill the gap in time.
