CSTDs for Drug Administration

April 2017 : State of Pharmacy Compounding - Vol.14 No. 4 - Page #30
Category: Closed System Drug-Transfer Devices (CSTDs)

Supplying limited amounts of hazardous drugs to the nursing floors is no longer an acceptable excuse for avoiding CSTD adoption. By July 2018, when the requirements in USP <800> become enforceable, every facility administering HDs will need to have CSTDs in place for medication administration. Given the number of facilities that have yet to implement CSTDs, this marketplace should be quite busy over the coming months.

As we do every year, we invite you to take advantage of our Compounding Slide Kit.

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.
