San Jose, CA (PRWEB) June 01, 2013
Supporting a strengthened accreditation process, Leiter’s Compounding Pharmacy commended the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB) in its effort to distinguish accredited compounding pharmacies from unaccredited ones. PCAB announced that it will be conducting unannounced surveys of compounding pharmacies seeking to renew accreditation from the group starting September 1, 2013.
“We welcome the unannounced surveys,” said Charles Leiter, President and CEO of Leiter’s Compounding Pharmacy in San Jose, CA. “This new process helps level the playing field for all of us. Now if a hospital, patient or doctor needs a compounded preparation and they select a PCAB accredited pharmacy, they can feel comfortable with their decision.”
Leiter’s Compounding Pharmacy is a PCAB Accredited pharmacy and offers sterile and non-sterile compounds both locally and nationwide.
