Years ago, it was not unusual for drug waste to be deposited in trash containers or a drain. Now, medical facilities must demonstrate strict adherence to environmental waste regulations to surveyors systematically.
While many pharmacies may have completed some of the basics around USP <800> compliance, PharmEcology’s proven approach and documentation tools enable pharmacies to identify gaps in the process. PharmEcology Services offers a unique consulting service which leverages the PharmEcology database to provide an initial Assessment of Risk (A of R) from the client’s Data Analysis. These details are customized to the organization’s decisions on hazardous drug handling and used in future evaluation of hazardous drugs.
Management also receives Functional Risk Minimization templates for documenting all relevant decisions by function and type of personnel and their role in hazardous drug handling.
Hospitals, clinics, and outpatient facilities receive safe, responsible waste services and environmental solutions from PharmEcology from Waste Management. This program is known as the preeminent thought leader in pharmaceutical waste management since its inception in 2000.
