Before a TPN order may be compounded, it must have the proper approvals - usually by the pharmacist.
There are several steps to the compounding process. Each is in place to facilitate
the regular operation of a pharmacy or TPN compounding facility.
Here are the steps in the overall process:
- Add the patient data into the system
- Enter a new TPN order for the patient
- Submit the order for pharmacist authorization
- Authorize the order
- Print the labels for the final container
- Compound the order
The PINNACLE™ System system
TPN Manager Software helps to automate all of these steps.
