Central Pharmacy, we are responding to the increasing need for sterile
products in the community setting
many years now, one of the major skills of hospital pharmacists has
been in the preparation of sterile products for inpatients. Products
ranging from injectables to opthalmics are prepared by pharmacists on
a daily basis in hospitals all over the world, and this is nothing new
or novel. However, sterile compounding in the community is a trend
seen only in recent years.
Central Pharmacy, we have recognized the need for sterile compounding
in the community and we have responded. As the only community pharmacy
in Newfoundland with the proper facilities and equipment to prepare
sterile products, we have found ourselves in a unique position in the
province. Not only are we able to offer the patient outpatient service
for things which only a short time ago would require a trip to the
hospital, or even admission in the hospital, but, by using our
specialty compounding skills, we are able to offer novel approaches
that are not available anywhere else!
following are examples of unique sterile product areas which we have
pursued thus far. If you feel that you or someone you know could
benefit from our ability to compound sterile products and would like
more information, please contact one of our knowledgeable pharmacists.
We will be happy to discuss your questions and concerns.
