House committee passes bill regulating compounding pharmacies
Preventing a repeat of a 2012 fungal meningitis outbreak through a Massachusetts compounding pharmacy was the purpose of a bill approved unanimously by a House committee Monday.
Rep. Jimmy Patronis sponsored HB 7077, which would impose registration requirements and standards for “compounding pharmacies” which make medications tailored to the needs of individual patients.
Compounding pharmacies are located in other states but sell medicines in Florida. The House Health Care Appropriations Subcommittee approved the bill.
