Avoiding the Meningitis Outbreak

Avoiding the Meningitis Outbreak–Expert Speaks out About Selecting a Qualified Compounding Pharmacy

Hello,

Most of you have heard about the tragic incident regarding tainted steroid injections from New England Compounding Center (NECC), a non-accredited provider located in Massachusetts. Our thoughts and prayers are with the individuals, families and friends of all those who have been affected.This unfortunate incident underscores the importance of qualifying your compounding pharmacy partner. Since 2006, the standard of care for prescription compounding has been PCAB accreditation. This credential provides tangible evidence to doctors, patients, and pharmacists that comprehensive quality systems are in place, designed to ensure product integrity and safety.To date, there are roughly 170 PCAB accredited facilities nationally. Of these, Health Dimensions is proud to be among the first in this cohort (accredited since 2006) and is well known for its sterile product services. On this important point, Health Dimensions is additionally recognized as a CQI Center of Excellence by Dynalabs, an independent quality assurance laboratory.Health Dimensions sterile product services revolve around a robust program designed to ensure product integrity which briefly includes:

  • Comprehensive standardized operating procedures
  • Environmental monitoring
  • USP 71 sterility testing (by an independent laboratory)
  • USP 85 endotoxin testing (by an independent laboratory)
  • USP potency testing
  • Pre-release quarantine
  • Employee validation and training

Now, more than ever, it is critical to know who your compounding partner is. Health Dimensions’ PCAB accreditation and CQI recognition provides tangible, third party evidence that quality assurance is the top priority. Our greatest appreciation is extended for your confidence and support, and we welcome any questions you may have.
