Model Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)
Detailed standard operating procedures are the foundation of robust sterile and nonsterile compounding practice. When written properly, they should tell the reader exactly what to do as well as why, where, when and how to perform the activity.
CriticalPoint has developed of a set of template policies, procedures, and accompanying documentation forms (together referred to as the SOPs). They are effective in establishing robust operating procedures that ensure patient safety.
These detailed procedures and forms reflect not only guidance to foster achievement of compliance with Chapter 795, 797, and 800 but with aseptic processing best practices as well. They are continually refined and updated to reflect regulatory changes (like Chapter 797 and Chapter 800 revisions). They are consistent with the CriticalPoint eLearning Training while providing more specific “how to” detail in regard to process as well as documentation. The SOPs can be harmonized to match the actual working conditions of your compounding facility and practice.
