Feedback for Seeking Feedback on Non-Sterile Compounding Standards

Pharmacist  ·  Oct. 21, 2016

I read the document provided and I found it a very comprehemsive reading that covered all the areas in non sterile compounding of pharmaceuticals. However I do have only two concerns :

1). I don't think its necessary to have an entire room dedicated to non sterile preparation as discuss in a certain section of the article. I beleive it should be based on what is being compounded (can the mixture be easily contaminated or not).

2). I do believe a compounding supervisor is a brilliant idea and I am strong believer in "double accountability". In otherwords both compounding personel and the compounding supervisor ie. pharmacist or pharmacy technician should sign off on the ingredients being used on a log sheet (this is separate and apart from the pharmacist/technician who checks the compounding formula being used and the quantity of each ingredients to be use). In other words, the compounding supervisor is an additional or final check of the process and should ideally not be the same person who was involved in the initial checking of the process.

Thanks for the opportunity to participate in the discussion.
