Closed System Drug-Transfer Device (CSTD) usage grew this year, and these safety devices are now employed in the majority of hospitals with more than 200 beds. Pharmacy directors expect CSTD implementations to continue, with a significant portion of the future purchasing activity occurring in hospitals with at least 100 beds. Notably, those facilities that have conducted a wipe analysis are also more likely to plan a CSTD adoption in the near future.
As we do every year, we invite you to take advantage of our Compounding Slide Kit. Pharmacy Purchasing & Products is happy to provide much of the data you find on the following pages as PowerPoint slides. You are welcome to use this data in your own presentations; we hope it serves as a valuable support as you make the case for additional investments at your facility. And you are certainly welcome to incorporate the data into presentations you may make externally to educate your colleagues on compounding opportunities they may be considering. Simply access the slides on our website (www.pppmag.com/slides).
