PCAB Accredited

In September 2011, Potter’s House Apothecary earned the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board’s (PCAB) Seal of Accreditation for meeting the highest quality and safety standards in our industry.

The PCAB Accreditation is a system of standards created by a board composed of leading experts in the compounding pharmacy field today. With the demand for 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 and safety processes.

While compounding pharmacies are regulated by their state board of pharmacy, PCAB is the most comprehensive way to ensure a compounding pharmacy is committed to continuous quality improvement and has undergone the profession’s most rigorous review and inspection. Our commitment to compliance significantly reduces the risks that can be associated with compounding medication.

We are honored to have been among the first in the nation to earn this distinguished accreditation. Our seal of accreditation sets us apart from other pharmacies and assures you that Potter’s House Apothecary is dedicated to protecting our patients by practicing safe, high-quality compounding.

USP 795, 797 and 800 Compliant

United States Pharmacopeia (USP) is a nonprofit scientific organization that works to improve safety and quality standards in healthcare related to the medications we take and the foods we eat.

USP has established standards to ensure patients receive quality preparations that are free from contaminates and are consistent in intended identity, strength and potency. The standards for compounding pharmacies are issued in chapters and include 795, 797, and 800. These chapters include a number of requirements and are enforced by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and other governing authorities including the State Board of Pharmacy.

USP General Chapter <795> provides requirements for the compounding process, facilities, equipment, documentation, quality controls and training associated with patient safety.

USP General Chapter <797> outlines responsibilities of compounding personnel and their training, environmental monitoring, storage of chemicals and testing of finished preparations.

USP General Chapter <800> provides standards for safe handling of hazardous drugs to minimize the risk of exposure to healthcare personnel, patients and the environment.

The safety of our patients and personnel are our highest priority. At Potter’s House we have incorporated these standards into our daily operating procedures and believe compliance is essential to delivering safe, quality and effective compounds.
