Acute piperacillin+tazobactam shortage – important advice – JHH and HNELHD

Currently there is a worldwide shortage of piperacillin+tazobactam , an additional issue to the shortage earlier this year. No further stock will be available until around April 2018 and therefore current holdings require conservation as much as possible.

For further advice, please contact the Hunter New England Local Health District Infectious Diseases or Microbiology Services via 02 49213000.
