Non-Sterile Pharmacy Compounding (CFNS):
Non-Sterile Pharmacy Compounding is a process by which a Pharmacist prepares drugs by combining, mixing, or altering ingredients into a pharmaceutical preparation. These preparations are designed to be administered by a route of administration that does not require sterility as result of a practitioner’s prescription drug order. Compounding includes the preparation of drugs in anticipation of receiving prescription drug orders based on routine, regularly-observed prescribing patterns.
