Handling of Hazardous Drugs in Community Pharmacy
Your pharmacy has no doubt been handling hazardous drugs (HD) for years. You may be surprised to find methotrexate, phenytoin, paroxetine and even oral contraceptives on the hazardous drug list. Now is the time to review your processes for the identification and management of hazardous drugs to ensure your pharmacy is compliant with USP 800.
Attaining full USP 800 compliance is extensive, impractical for most community pharmacies and costly. Assessments of risk allow pharmacies to bypass full containment strategies.
Designed for community pharmacies, PAAS National®’s USP 800 Compliance Program (excluding HD compounding pharmacies) will reduce exposure to hazardous drugs through physical processes, written policies and training to ensure compliance with USP 800. PAAS will provide you with the information necessary to implement a fully functional program with the least necessary interruption to your day-to-day business, while being tailored to your operational needs.
