Standard Operating Procedures

qqDetailed standard operating procedures are the foundation of a robust sterile compounding practice. When written properly, they should tell the reader exactly what to do as well as why, where, when and how to perform the activity.

We have partnered with ClinicalIQ to capture their expertise through the development of a set of template policies, procedures and accompanying documentation forms (together referred to as the SOPs).  They are effective in establishing robust operating procedures that ensure patient safety.

These detailed SOPs reflect not only guidance to foster achievement of compliance with Chapter <797> and Chapter <800> but with aseptic processing best practices as well. They are continually refined and updated regularly to reflect regulatory changes (like Chapter <797> and Chapter <800> revisions). They are consistent with the CriticalPoint eLearning Training but provide more specific “how to” detail in regards to process as well as documentation.The SOPs can be harmonized to match the actual working conditions of your compounding facility and practice.

The entire Sterile Compounding Completed Set can be purchased HERE for $3995.

 

Free Gap Analysis Tool

The Gap Tool allows users to measure their compliance with either Chapter <797>, Chapter <800> or both.  The results assist in benchmarking your progress and identify where additional resources and focus are required to continue to improve sterile compounding practice and patient safety. In return for your participation, you will receive a highly detailed Action Plan for Compliance that is automatically created from your answers to the survey. This Action Plan provides documentation that can be used to begin or continue sterile compounding practice improvements at your location. The gap tool takes 60 to 90 minutes to complete but does not need to be completed in one sitting.
