In July of 2011, Community Pharmacy earned the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board's Seal of Accreditation for meeting the compounding pharmacy industry's highest quality and safety standards.
The PCAB® Seal of Accreditation is a new system of standards created by the PCAB®, a board composed of the leading experts in the compounding pharmacy field today. Our new accreditation status as a PCAB Accredited® compounding pharmacy lets you know that Community Pharmacy shows dedication to protecting our patients by practicing safe, high-quality compounding.
With the demand of patient-specific, compounded medications increasing each year, there has been a need for an enhanced, profession-wide system of standards by which each compounding pharmacy can test its quality processes. While as you know, compounding pharmacy is regulated by the state, PCAB® Accreditation is an even more comprehensive way to ensure a compounding pharmacy has undergone the compounding pharmacy profession's most rigorous review and inspection measures.
To earn the designation "PCAB Accredited® compounding pharmacy," Community Pharmacy completed an extensive application that was reviewed by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board. Our compounding policies and procedures were then reviewed by professionals. Next, we opened our doors for an extensive on-site inspection led by compounding experts. Only when these stringent evaluations were completed did the PCAB® officially grant us the PCAB® Seal of Accreditation.
We are honored to be among the first in the nation to earn this new accreditation, as it sets Community Pharmacy apart from other compounding pharmacies. It confirms our commitment to providing safe, personalized solutions that meet the medical needs of our patients and healthcare providers who rely on us for these specialized medicines.
