The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) developed USP General Chapter <800> to better protect all workers, patients and general public who may potentially come in contact with hazardous drugs. Many hospitals are keeping this top of mind as they try to understand how these requirements will impact their pharmacy operations. If your hospital pharmacy currently repackages hazardous drugs in-house, you may need to implement new steps and process changes to be compliant with USP <800> once it becomes official (tentatively Dec. 1, 2019).
For more than 40 years, Safecor Health has been the national leader committed to providing unit-dose repackaging services that allow pharmacists to focus on patient care by outsourcing the challenging and time-consuming tasks of packaging. But we’re more than just a repackager – we’re a strategic partner here to help you optimize pharmacy operations.
