Compounding for Hospice and Palliative Care

Because of the special needs of the dying patient, it is hard to imagine a hospice that could function without the services of a compounding pharmacist. Hospice patients often require the advanced technology compounding has to offer. When expertly applied, this technology can significantly reduce symptoms of pain, anxiety, nausea and vomiting, shortness of breath and terminal agitation. The result is a comfortable and more dignified end-of-life.

Traditional dosage forms are often not practical given the patient’s physical condition, or are difficult for the family member to administer. In these cases, the compounding pharmacist can formulate alternate dosage forms such as transdermal gels, concentrated liquids or suppositories. Liberty’s class-1000 clean room also enables us to provide intravenous, injectable, ophthalmic and inhalation preparations. Our consulting pharmacists can provide solutions for particularly challenging situations.
