PCAB Accredited Compounding PharmacyMD Custom Rx is now a PCAB Accredited compounding pharmacy, certified to follow the highest level of prescription compounding standards
The MD Custom Rx Compounding Pharmacy has been awarded PCAB Accreditation by the Prescription Compounding Accreditation Board. The PCAB Accreditation is awarded only to compounding pharmacies who:
- Use only safe chemicals from highly reliable suppliers
- Obtain regular, specialized training for compounding pharmacists and technicians
- Maintain pharmacy facilities meeting design and other related standards to ensure pharmacy is clear and free of contamination
- Meet or Exceed USP <797> standards for sterile prescription compounding
- Adhere to the PCAB "Principles of Compounding"
For pharmacies to become PCAB Accredited, they must submit documented proof they meet PCAB quality standards, submit their prescription compounding policies and procedures for regular review, and make their compounding pharmacy available to regular physical inspections.
Getting your compounded prescriptions from a PCAB Accredited pharmacy is important because it ensures your prescription will be safe AND potent. There are many compounding pharmacies that may not be stocking the highest grade pharmaceuticals, or may use drugs which have passed their expiration date, or may not have a proper clean room for sterile compounding. Often, when you come to a compounding pharmacy, it is because conventional medication dosages are not working, and your doctor has decided you might benefit from something different. That’s why it is crucial to KNOW you are getting potent, safe drugs in the right dosage and format from your compounding pharmacy – to take prescription quality issues out of the equation.
MD Custom Rx is one of only two compounding pharmacies in Wisconsin to receive PCAB accreditation, and MD Custom Rx offers a much broader range of prescription compounding options than any other Wisconsin compounding pharmacy, as well as a higher level of personalized attention and care.
While all compounding pharmacies are required to meet the requirements set by their respective state boards of pharmacy, PCAB Accredited denotes a more stringent and comprehensive standard which serves as an assurance that our compounding pharmacy has been tested against the profession's most rigorous standards.
PCAB criteria was established by a Standards Committee of compounding pharmacists and nationally-recognized experts in the compounding pharmacy profession.
To earn our designation as a PCAB Accredited compounding pharmacy, we completed an extensive application and submission process, documenting our education, training, licensures, policies and procedures. Our documentation was reviewed by PCAB. Next, we had to pass an extensive on-site inspection. Only when this stringent evaluation was completed and we were judged to have met all criteria, did the PCAB officially grant us the PCAB Seal of Accreditation.
We are honored to receive the PCAS Seal of Accreditation. We feel it confirms our commitment, to providing safe, personalized solutions that meet the medical needs of our patients - and the needs of the healthcare providers in our community.
