Housekeeping in the pharmacy

  • Lorraine Osman


Yes, you read that correctly. But we’re not talking about the housekeeping you do at home! We’re going to have a look at the importance of housekeeping in the pharmacy. It’s so important that the Good Pharmacy Practice (GPP) rules require the pharmacy to have a standard operating procedure on housekeeping, i.e. a document that clearly states who must do what, as well as how and when they must do it. Housekeeping is a critical part of the work of both pharmacists and pharmacy support personnel.
