We are proud to announce that ClearSpring Pharmacy’s Littleton location has just earned the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board’s (PCAB®) Seal of Accreditation for meeting and/or exceeding national quality standards for sterile and non‐sterile compounding pharmacy compounding.
Our designation as a PCAB® Accredited compounding pharmacy is formal recognition that ClearSpring Pharmacy’s Littleton location ranks among the best compounding pharmacies in the United States for compliance with quality standards.
The Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB®) is a not-for-profit corporation formed and led by eight national pharmacy organizations that recognized the need for a national standards organization for compounding pharmacy. Together, these leading experts in the compounding pharmacy field today developed the industry principles, policies and standards for the practice of compounding pharmacy, as well as the PCAB Accreditation criteria and processes.
These standards focus on the quality and safety of compounded preparations. Examples include:
Pharmacies seeking accreditation must submit documented proof that they meet PCAB® quality standards, submit their policies and procedures for regular review, and open their doors to regular physical inspections. Achieving accreditation is a strong statement of ClearSpring Pharmacy’s commitment to provide high quality compounded medications for our community and documents that we meet or exceed national quality standards.
Compounding medications is an integral part of the practice of pharmacy, and with the demand of patient-specific compounded medications increasing each year, there is a need for an enhanced, profession-wide system of standards by which each compounding pharmacy can test its quality processes. While compounding pharmacy is regulated by the state, accreditation is an even more comprehensive way to ensure a compounding pharmacy is meeting the highest quality and safety standards, giving patients and prescribers a way to select a quality pharmacy.
ClearSpring Pharmacy is honored to be PCAB Accredited®. It confirms our commitment to providing safe, personalized solutions that meet the medical needs of our patients – and the needs of healthcare providers who rely on us for these specialized medicines. We believe this will further strengthen the bond of trust between our pharmacy and our patients and practitioners.
