Docket No. 2005D-0174. Your Guidance policy is good for hospitals that are having to prepackaged medications that are not available from the manufacturer in unit dose packages. The 1-year beyond use dating prevents waste in an already stressed healthcare system, and helps us provide a safer means for medications to be dispensed, which ultimately reduces medication errors.
