Abstract

Within a large, nine-hospital health-system, there are a number of hospitals that have historically reviewed the current literature individually to establish hospital-specific non-hazardous compounded sterile product (CSP) beyond-use date (BUD) lists. Creating and standardizing the list on a system level is a potential model that could reduce work at the individual site level, increase network patient safety, and facilitate the implementation of network technology. Researchers reviewed the most up-to-date literature and current non-hazardous CSP BUD lists at each site for inconsistencies to highlight the value and increased safety associated with standardizing this resource across the network.
