Florida inspections reveal drug compounding health violations - South Florida Business Journal:

"Consumers often assume drugs are manufactured with the utmost care before injecting them into their veins or dropping them into their eyes, but Florida pharmacy inspectors have found that’s not always the case.
Since October 2012, 11 South Florida pharmacies have had their licenses revoked, relinquished or permanently suspended as compounders by the state Board of Pharmacy because of violations that directly impacted product safety. "

As Home IVs Grow, Medicare Patients Miss Out - WSJ.com

As Home IVs Grow, Medicare Patients Miss Out - WSJ.com:

"Growing numbers of patients needing intravenous medications are getting their treatments at home. But a gap in Medicare coverage is making it harder for older and sicker patients to swap hospital stays for home care.

Hundreds of new intravenous drugs and biologic products have come on the market in recent years to treat maladies such as infections, cancer and chronic diseases. Administering these medications at home generally costs $150 to $200 a day, far below the $1,500-to-$2,500-a-day cost of a typical inpatient hospital stay. Home-infusion therapy also eliminates the risk that patients will be exposed to infections caused by hospital bacteria that can invade through IV lines and catheters."
