The Neighborhood Health Clinic in Naples, Fla., has $2.5 million in medications going bad if power does not get restored or if the medications can't get moved, according to an article on the Naples News website.
The clinic serves 10,000 patients who are uninsured and working residents with chronic medical conditions.
The medications need to be stored at room temperature, but without electricity and air conditioning, the temperature in the building is 80 degrees.
“They can only be at that temperature for 24 hours,” Damon Burkhart, the medication room director at Neighborhood said in the article. “They are already past that time.”
