Description

There has been a general lacking of some pharmacies to properly qualify material suppliers or set company specifications of materials used in compounding. This has resulted in several recalls in compounded preparations and compromises in patient safety. It is not enough to buy from a supplier that “everyone uses.” It’s no longer ok to purchase raw materials without first confirming they are allowed for compounding use. Additionally, the lifecycle of materials used in compounding needs to be well controlled. How are incoming materials received, handled, and approved? How and where are they stored? How are they transferred into the compounding area? Then once a compound is prepared, how does it leave the facility? What about expired materials and finished compounds?
