In Short Supply

    Listen

    Shortages can bring minor inconveniences, like expensive avocados or almonds. In healthcare, they can mean the difference between getting the care you need when you need it – or not. On this episode, we look at the dire shortage of child psychiatrists and how it’s affecting families across the country. We’ll explore why blood bank managers despise summer, and why so few hospitals have specially trained nurses to deal with rape victims. Also, shortages in our food supplies – and what we can do to get around them.
