On Tuesday, July 29, the American Health Lawyers Association is hosting What Hospitals Need to Know about the New Drug Compounding Law from 1-2:30 p.m. CST.
This webinar will describe the new drug compounding law passed by Congress last year, the safety issues that precipitated it, and the timeline for implementation. Hospitals often depend on customized medications, particularly for sterile injectable products and for non-sterile drugs for special populations, such as customized dosages for children, infants, neonates, and geriatric patients. Hospitals sometimes compound medications in their own pharmacies, or rely on outside sources for their compounded medications. In 2012, an outbreak of fungal meningitis and other infections among patients who received a contaminated version of a compounded steroid injection prompted Congress to clarify federal and state oversight of drug compounding.
