Abstract:  Batch-preparation of compounded medications in anticipation of orders or prescriptions and repackaging of medications into unit-dose packages are necessary in the hospital or institutional setting in order to provide around-the-clock patient care. Professional judgment by the compounding pharmacist(s) and adherence to specific standards and guidelines set by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations; United States Pharmacopeial Convention, Inc.; and American Society of Health-System Pharmacists help to ensure that such medications retain their expected potency and are properly labeled, stored, and administered.
