GENERAL
The proposed Guidance policy will be good for hospitals that are having bulk medications prepackaged into unit-dose. It will allow hospitals to place these orders less frequently and prevent waste by not having to discard perfectly good outdated medications. It also will help hospitals to make their pharmacy environmentally safe for their employees by not having to prepackage the cytotoxic medications.
