July 2017 : Hazardous Drug Handling - Vol.14 No. 7 - Page #1

Virtually every hospital pharmacy in the United States must undertake some change to their facility, policies and procedures, and/or workflows in order to achieve compliance to USP <800> by the July 1, 2018 deadline. Because we know that state boards of pharmacy will be querying pharmacy practices related to hazardous drugs (HDs) during inspections following the July deadline, there is an increasing urgency for facilities to adopt appropriate equipment and compliant practices in the coming months. The data herein was collected as part of PP&P’s State of Pharmacy Compounding survey; additional information from this survey is available at www.pppmag.com/sopc.
