The pharmacists and certified pharmacy technicians at Guardian Pharmacy of Northwest Florida recently completed and passed the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists’ compounding training program. The class – led by Cindy Dent, director of operations at Guardian NWFL – provided key training and required employees to pass a technique test and finger check to ensure proper hand washing.
In addition to this course, Guardian NWFL also recently completed a room upgrade to comply with the most recent USP 797 regulations on sterile compounding. The room has been certified by a third party vendor and approved by the Florida Board of Pharmacy. Our sterile room is certified as a Class 5, allowing us to compound all IV antibiotic therapies and hydrations.
To best serve our multiple skilled nursing facilities throughout the Florida panhandle, it is imperative that our staff have up-to-date knowledge on the proper methods for providing infusion therapy to residents. The staff at Guardian NWFL is always eager to participate in any and all education programs that better equip us to provide quality this quality care.
