TRUTECH CONSTRUCTION partners with engineers, architects and equipment providers to provide hospitals or healthcare facilities with renovations to existing facilities or new construction.
The USP pharmaceutical compounding requirements outlined in <USP 795> Pharmaceutical Compounding – Nonsterile Preparations, <USP 797> for Sterile Preparations, and <USP 800> Hazardous Drugs—Handling in Healthcare Settings have been revised. Revisions to all three USP chapters are anticipated to become effective nationally December 2019.
The new guidelines set specific requirements for engineering and environmental quality and control at all hospital facilities.
The first step for any compounding pharmacy attempting to undertake the new requirements in <USP 795>, <USP 797> or <USP 800> is a complete extensive review of the existing facility. This can be best achieved by putting together a design team comprised of pharmacy stakeholders, select pharmacy staff, architect, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineers, security, maintenance, commissioning agents and the general contractor.
Once the review is completed an execution plan to resolve any gaps should be prepared outlining all timelines for renovation completion, budgets and operational impact. A clear Basis of Design (BOD) should be created for the project so design and engineering deliverables and specifications are clearly defined.
