Roles require absolute precision and a strong attention to detail as small mistakes can have devastating consequences. Compared to a typical outpatient pharmacy role, such as in a community pharmacy, the sterile compounding technician works much more independently. Sterile compounding roles require in-depth knowledge of the various state, federal, and non-governmental guidelines that regulate the practice. Some of the most important regulations are those created by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), a scientific nonprofit organization. These regulations are categorized into three main sections, based on the type of compounding done. They are USP <795> for nonsterile compounding, USP <797> for sterile compounding, and USP 800, for hazardous compounding.
Under the direct supervision of a staff pharmacist, lead tech and the pharmacy supervisor, follows established policies and procedures to perform a variety of technical and clerical support tasks that are integral to the operation of the department. The position works in the main hospital IV room as well as the Cancer Center IV room.
This technician prepares sterile and non-sterile compounded products according to production schedules and patient orders at the hospital; updates IV production list and makes all new mixes; inventories and orders IV admixture supplies; sets up and prepares all compounding orders; cleans and maintains work area and equipment; restocks drugs, diluents, syringes and needles; recycles and/or destroys returned IV's and syringes; pulls syringes from freezer and dates and bags; processing medication returns and patient credits
Scion Health considers a consistently positive, cooperative, self-motivated, courteous, and professional attitude to be an essential function of every position. Â While different positions have different primary areas of responsibility, everyone needs to work as a team, and we expect all employees to roll up their sleeves and pitch in as necessary to get the job done.
Employees must be able to relate to other people beyond giving and receiving instructions: (a) can get along with co-workers or peers without exhibiting behavioral extremes, (b) perform work activities requiring negotiating, instructing, supervising, persuading, or speaking with others; and (c) respond appropriately to constructive feedback from a supervisor.
