(PROVIDENCE, RI) Another compounding pharmacy in Rhode Island has been shuttered and the pharmacist in charge barred from practicing. And once again, cleanliness and record-keeping played a part.

RI compounding pharmacy reopens, scrutiny continues

Dec 26, 2012

PROVIDENCE, RI - Rhode Island health inspectors found that Bayview pharmacy had illegally distributed certain medications, failed to keep some records, and not properly maintained a sterile mixing area. A recent Health department order shows the pharmacy has been allowed to resume compounding as long as it follows procedures. But as public attention on compounding pharmacies continues, University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy dean Ronald Jordan says he hopes any new regulations won't squelch patient access to the drugs they need.
