Webinar – Hospital Pharmacy USP 797 and 800: Preparing for the Impact on Compliance and Facility Operations
Wednesday, March 22, 2017
1:00 – 2:00 pm EDT
Complying with the current, and proposed, USP 797 and new 800 standards will be a complex, time-consuming, and expensive process. Uncertainty about how budgets and operations may be impacted makes it difficult for hospitals to navigate these changes.
USP 797 and the new USP 800 standards don’t present a simple checklist to comply with. Hospitals will need to make important decisions about how to best manage sterile compounding and these decisions will impact operations budgets. Physical plant and space limitations may present compliance barriers that will require financial and staff resources to overcome. Hospitals that compound a limited number of hazardous drugs per year may find these changes costly, but there are options to lower costs.
