Whether it’s Hurricane Elsa whipping up winds in Florida, the recent heat wave with mercury-busting temperatures out West, or anything in between, it can be a nail-biting experience for patients waiting on essential specialty medications during unusual weather events.

It can sometimes be a bumpy road when it comes to getting essential medications in the hands of patients facing complex or chronic medical conditions, according to a recent survey of more than 400 nurses.
