Maintaining USP compliance reduces risk and keeps staff, patients and your business safe. Sterile, non-sterile and hazardous drug compounding requirements for USP compliance are evolving in response to high profile cases that involved poor drug compounding and management practices. 

Types of Compounding Facilities Vary, But the Need for Quality and Safety is the Same

In the past several years, citations and recommendations have doubled for compounding pharmacies. Is your organization one of 76% of pharmacy facilities that do not currently meet USP compliance requirements?  There are many variables to track when compounding medications, including making an appropriate dose to managing the physical and chemical properties of active and other ingredients. Thus, standardizing practices, procedures and training on the latest requirements for USP chapters <795>, <797> and <800> is crucial to producing safe, high-quality medications every time.

USP challenges vary across facilities that compound medications:

  • Home Infusion centers supporting patients who need extended infusion therapy.
  • Oncology pharmacies customizing medications for each patient’s cancer treatment.
  • Pediatric Pharmacies customizing compounded medications for each child’s needs and condition.
  • Veterinary Pharmacies customizing compounded medications dose and flavors for pets and large animals.
  • Specialty Pharmacies serving a broad range of needs that include veterinary, geriatric, pediatric, palliative care and dentistry patients.
