What is USP 797?

Endorsed by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) with an aggressive compliance schedule, USP 797 has received great attention from hospital administrative, clinical and pharmacy staff.

However, its requirements also extend to architectural and environmental areas. Consequently, hospital design, construction and operations professionals should also become familiar with it.

Far-reaching regulation 

USP 797 is a far-reaching regulation that governs a wide range of pharmacy policies and procedures. It is designed both to cut down on infections transmitted to patients through pharmaceutical products and to better protect staff working in pharmacies in the course of their exposure to pharmaceuticals.

Issued by U.S. Pharmacopoeia (USP), the regulation governs any pharmacy that prepares "compounded sterile preparations" (CSPs). Many pharmacies fit this description. Moreover, many large hospitals have several pharmacies--a main one and several satellite pharmacies--that will be affected.
