How will USP 800 Impact My Retail and LTC Pharmacy?
USP-800 was designed to address the proper handling of hazardous drugs (HDs) in a pharmacy setting. Its guidelines are plainly aimed at promoting patient and worker safety in and around non- sterile and sterile compounding. The first section clearly covers compounding in its purest form.
However, when you move into section two, you quickly realize the dispensing of pills, capsules, liquids and manufactured packaged items are also covered by USP-800 Different types of terms are being used to describe types of hazardous drugs, such as: antineoplastic, non-antineoplastic, reproductive risk only; dosage form, risk of exposure, packaging and manipulation. This may sound like a whole lot of mumbo jumbo, but it is the new language of hazardous drugs.
