New federal regulations, known as USP<800>, are going into effect November 1, 2023. These regulations establish quality standards for handling hazardous drugs in health care settings and help promote patient safety, worker safety, and environmental protection. Antineoplastic agents used to treat cancer, some anti-virals, hormones, and some other medications are classified as hazardous drugs. This means they can potentially have the ability to cause harm to those handling them if done in a careless manner. USP<800> ensures that these medications are handled safely during compounding procedures and that the finished compounded medication is safe and effective for the patients. Building facilities that are compliant to these new regulations, however, comes at a cost that not all pharmacies can or choose to adopt. Realo Compounding Pharmacy is committed to patient safety and the safety of our staff. With USP<800> updates in place, we will continue to compound these important medications for our patients.
