Cho Ray Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City on Aug. 30 launched a new pharmacy department which meets the US Federal Standard No. 209E and ISO 14644-1.
The department was built at a cost of over 1 billion VND (48,500 USD) in cooperation with the US Baxter Pharmaceutical Group.
According to the hospital’s Director Dr. Nguyen Truong Son, the project will help the hospital to standardise the practical process of preparing drugs in a bacteria-free environment, which protected staff and reduced treatment costs for patients.
A representative of Baxter said the group was coordinating with the hospital to build a standard process based on the United States Pharmacopeia and Good Pharmacy Practice (GPP).
