Compounded medicines often are the only option for some patients and surgery cases, but how can your ASC ensure the safety of these solutions? In this month’s Ophthalmic ASC magazine, contributing editor Joseph F. Jalkiewicz delves into the world of compounding pharmacies with essential advice for choosing the right pharmacy while avoiding the risky operators. Contributing editor Robert Calandra considers infection control in the OR with a detailed look at investigating endophthalmitis cases. Maureen Waddle, MBA, of BSM Consulting, explains what ASC owners and managers must do to prepare for a changing payer system. And charitable surgery takes center stage with insights from Maria C. Scott, M.D., of the Chesapeake Eye Care and Laser Center, and Stephen Lane, M.D., co-chair of the ASCRS Foundation, whose Operation Sight program has performed more than 1,300 cataract surgeries free of charge.
