To Alabama Nurses
The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) has acknowledged that Alabama residents have received contaminated steroids compounded by the New England Compounding Center (NECC). The Alabama State Nurses Association is carefully following the situation and evaluating how this might impact nursing care in our state. To this end we want nurses to be aware that ADPH is the clearing house for all information. See below link to locate up to date information as well as an Adverse Reporting Form.
