ch 11 bulk repackaging, comp 18, pharm tech

bulk repackaging repackaging medications into single doses
non-sterile compounding preparing patient-specific medication doses or formulas
compounding can be done in a compounding or specialty pharmacy or in a community or retail pharmacy; prepare a wide assortment of solutions, ointments, creams, suppositories, and other drug delivery systems for humans and animals
single dose commonly referred to as unit dose medication
packaging forms unit dose, single dose, bubble or blister pack, or in a container used in traditional dispensing
hospital packaging forms unit dose containers such as unit dose packs or strip packs and liquid cups from a manufacturer, they will make their own when necessary
nursing and home health care facilities packaging blister card or bubble pack (i.e. punch cards)
True / False Only one drug product at a time should be prepackaged in a specific work area True
Label requirements on bulk repackaging proprietary and nonproprietary names, dosage form, strength, strength of an individual dose, total contents delivered, beyond-use date, and lot number
five reasons a pharmacy may repackage bulk medication 1.) certain meds aren't available unit dosed 2.)cost of repackaging bulk may be less than unit dosed 3.)repackaging allows the pharmacy to provide a patient with a new med more quickly, rather than having to order the drug and wait for delivery 4.) labeling each individual dose reduces chances of errors 5.) if unit dose isn't used, it can be returned to stock and used for another patient at another time
GMP Good Manufacturing Practices established by FDA must be followed to guarantee safe and effective products; USP 795 and OSHA guidelines must also be considered
example of a GMP repackaging in amber colored containers to avoid exposure to sunlight and prevent the medication from degrading
