New Jersey Ambulances Carrying Solu-Cortef

Recommended Posts

 

The New Jersey Department of Health passed a waiver in October of last year that allows ambulances to carry Solu-Cortef, for the purposes of treating an adrenal crisis. As a result, New Jersey ambulances can be better prepared to treat adrenal insufficiency. 

 

This news was brought to NADF by Karen Fountain of the CARES Foundation, who has been helping push state health directors to accept protocols to help treat adrenal insufficient patients during an emergency. 

 

Adrenal insufficient people in New Jersey should contact their local EMS to make them aware of the waiver, and encourage them to carry Solu-Cortef in their ambulances.

 

The hope is that other states, and eventually the entire coun- try and beyond, will start having their ambulances carry the needed medication to treat adrenal crisis.
