Medication preparation in the OR setting


At your facility, what percent of medication preparation for the OR setting is being done in the pharmacy vs. the OR vs. 503b outsourced?

What types of medications are prepared within the OR suite?

What have you done to minimize medication preparation in the OR?

Thanks in advance for your responses!
