On December 1, 2019, when USP <800> becomes official, it will be informational and not applicable until the appeals process is complete. According to the recently posted USP <800> Frequently Asked Questions document, USP Chapter 800 (Hazardous Drugs -  Handling in Healthcare Settings) only applies when a practitioner is compounding. It clearly states that since administration and dispensing final dosage forms are not compounding, Chapter 800 does not apply to those functions. Further, "Final dosage forms of HDs that do not require any further manipulation may be dispensed without any further requirements for containment unless required by the manufacturer or if visual indicators of HD exposure hazards are present (e.g., HD dust or leakage). These do not require any additional storage or handling requirements according to USP <800> unless otherwise required by the manufacturer." Click here for an FAQ about USP Chapter 800.

Nebraska Naloxone Standing Order

Although Neb. Rev. Stat. Sec. 28-470 may allow pharmacists to dispense naloxone without a prescription, if a prescription is desired, the Nebraska Naloxone Standing Order signed by Dr. Janine Bergerac Fromm, Executive Medical Officer, can be used in place of a prescription, pursuant to Neb. Rev. Stat. Sec. 38-2840. Login to your NPA member profile to download the latest standing order signed on August 8, 2019.
