As far as the patient is concerned, the only way (s)he can judge the pharmacist's competence is by the neatness and accuracy of the label and from the personal treatment (s)he receives at the hands of the pharmacist. A patient will observe the label many times while taking the prescription and, therefore, it should be neat and attractive, as well as accurate and clear. Compounded products (lab exercises or preps= 60 points total) prepared during PHCY 6101 LAB are graded according to the following guidelines: • Each prep is worth 20 or 30 points (if 3 or 2 products are prepared), distributed as follows: a. Correct product *label (description below)= 10 or 15 points b. Accurate product volume/amount/number of units dispensed = 5 or 7.5 points c. Position of label (upside down or sideways, crooked) = 1 or 1.5 points d. Required auxiliary labels = 2 or 3 points (maximum of 3 per product; check also the size of the container e. Legibility/Neatness of product & label (loose, messy, smudged, unreadable) = 2 or 3 points Additional grading guidelines: • Label prepared with pencil or thick/blurred ink = ‐ 2 points • Container leaking/broken/wrong = no credit for the product (‐20 or ‐30 points) • Improper/ inaccurate compounding = no credit for the product (‐20 or ‐30 points) *Label grading (10 or 15 points each): see sample label further on ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ The prescription number (= locker # ‐student's initials‐ experiment #).(= 0.5 or 0.75 points) The name of the physician (0.5 or 0.75 point) The date of compounding (0.5 or 0.75 point) The name of the patient (1 or 1.5 points) The identity of the prescription product (name of formulation or drug) (1 or 1.5 points) The amount of drug(s) or the concentration(s) (percent or ratio concentration or quantity of drug per unit dose).

All labels will be manually prepared using a pen (pencil or marker are unacceptable) with handwriting that can be read easily. Student’s initials and locker number are mandatory for product identification and grading assignment. A label should be selected which will fit the size and type of container. The label should not be too large so that it overlaps the sides of the container or too small that it looks out of place on a large container. Labels must be neat, untarnished and aligned properly (not crooked). Labels should be attached to the containers so that the top of the label is at 1/4 to 3/4 of an inch from the top of a bottle or about equidistant from top and bottom of ajar or vial. Students are allowed to use white tape or correction fluid for errors, assuming the result is neat. Auxiliary labels, when appropriate, must be present. For product‐specific auxiliary labels check USP DI‐ for Health Care Professionals or other references available in the lab or online.
