Denise’s Pharmacy Creative Compounds now offers compounded medications that are unavailable due to a variety of reasons including back ordered, discontinued, and recalled medications. “We are essential to prescribers now that medications are scarce because of the reduction of supply chains, ongoing and vigilant national security, product safety concerns, quality and financial issues,” Denise Burnham, RPh, compounding pharmacist and owner of Denise’s Pharmacy Creative Compounds explains.
Because of their PCAB accreditation, Denise’s Pharmacy Creative Compounds is the preferred source for compounding, particularly sterile medications like midazolam, fentanyl, naloxone, ondansetron, atropine, lidocaine and even sodium bicarbonate injection have been in scarce supply. Several of these medications are vital to surgical care and critical care medicine and cannot be easily omitted or substituted with an alternative.
“We are proud to have earned the honor of being accredited by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB). Because of our extensive on-site inspections, our commitment to using only high quality chemicals and equipment and extending continuing education and training for our compounding pharmacists, we are the preferred compounding pharmacy for sterile products. Hospitals and surgery centers in the Oregon and Washington area rely on us to provide consistent, high quality compounded drugs,” says Denise Burnham. Besides their commitment to excellence, Denise’s Pharmacy Creative Compounds offers ongoing education to both medical practitioners and the general public as well as personal health consultations for pain, hormone replacement and self care. “There are still misconceptions and confusion about what a compounding pharmacy does. Compounders were the original pharmacists, before mass production came about. We formulate medications in our state of the art laboratory that are tailored to the specific needs of each patient ensuring they get the exact dosage needed for optimal health and healing. We are the opposite of the ‘one size fits all’ medicine philosophy,” Burnham explains.
Denise Burnham, RPh , graduated from Oregon State University College of Pharmacy in 1984. She spent over 10 years working at OHSU as the transplant pharmacist, drug information pharmacist and intensive care unit pharmacist. Burnham started Denise’s Pharmacy Creative Compounds in 1998 with a focus on hormone replacement therapies, pain solutions, sterile products and veterinary compounding.
