The PCAB® Seal of Accreditation is a system of standards created by the leading experts in the compounding pharmacy field today. Our status as a PCAB Accredited® compounding pharmacy assures that Boulevard Pharmaceutical Compounding Center is dedicated to protecting our patients by practicing safe, high-quality compounding.
With the demand for compounded prescriptions increasing each year, there has been a need for enhanced, profession-wide standards by which each compounding pharmacy can test its quality processes. While Boulevard Pharmaceutical Compounding Center is regulated by the state, PCAB® Accreditation is an even more comprehensive way to ensure a compounding pharmacy has undergone the profession’s most rigorous review and inspection measures.
To earn the designation “PCAB Accredited® Compounding Pharmacy,” we completed an extensive application and submission process that was reviewed by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board. Our compounding policies and procedures were then reviewed by professionals. Next, we opened our doors for an extensive on-site inspection led by compounding experts. Only when these stringent evaluations were completed did PCAB officially grant us the PCAB Seal of Accreditation.
We are honored to be among the handful of pharmacies that are PCAB accredited, as it sets us apart from other compounding pharmacies. It confirms our commitment to provide safe, personalized solutions that meet your medical needs. We also hope it will further strengthen the bond of trust you have with us.
Why Use Compounded Medications?
Compounding medications is an integral part of the practice of pharmacy - yet many people may not be aware of it. Compounded medications are ordered via prescriptions that are written by a physician, veterinarian or other legally authorized prescriber. Compounded medications are prepared for an individual patient by a specially trained technician under the supervision of of pharmacist for situations such as:
* When a child needs a smaller dose of a medicine that is only
commercially manufactured in adult doses.
* When a person cannot tolerate the inactive ingredients (such as gluten or sugar) in manufactured medicines.
* When a doctor believes a medicine is needed for his or her patient, but a
manufacturer has discontinued the medicine for economic reasons.
