Here’s an information source we think you’ll find valuable. It’s a newsletter called Sterile Compounding Pearls of Knowledge. It’s published by a firm called Critical Point. And, our staff at Patton Healthcare Consulting finds it very useful.
USP 797 Resources
In February, they published an article related to USP 797. What’s more, the article details how to choose the right media for staff and environmental monitoring. Although microbiology is a course many healthcare professionals took in college, it was not the major for most of us!
Certainly, we found this article enlightening given the TJC focus on USP 797. In specific, the need for staff fingertip sampling and media fill testing. Additionally, they describe the different media required for environmental sampling and sterility testing. Rather than try to explain the intricate details we encourage you to read this newsletter regularly. By comparison, like ours, their newsletter is free of charge.
