The role of supportive personnel, as well as the supervision of intravenous (IV) admixture compounding by staff pharmacists, should be clearly identified by the departmental manager. In doing so, the department should strive to achieve an optimal mix of professional and technical personnel with automated technology. Close attention must be paid to quality assurance in order to maintain the highest quality parenteral admixture. The logistics of comprehensive IV admixture services are described for a university affiliated teaching institution. Emphasis is made on a three-faceted approach to quality assurance, including technician training, end-product testing, and equipment maintenance.
