Learn how USP contributes to heathcare quality and safety through standards of compounding, handling of hazardous drugs, healthcare standards, drug classification, and medication safety and labeling.

From the time a medication is prescribed to the moment it reaches the patient, healthcare providers are expected to deliver optimal, personalized healthcare.

The USP Healthcare Quality and Safety (HQS) Center of Excellence serves as a trusted partner and informational resource for nurses, pharmacists, physicians, and other healthcare professionals focusing on quality medicines, medication dispensing, medication safety & labeling, and other areas related to patient care and healthcare settings.
