Compounding pharmacies in Quincy and Norwood have been shut down after a surprise state inspection found several alleged violations.
Anne Roach, media relations manager for the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, said the state agency conducted a surprise inspection of Medi-Son Solutions of Norwood on April 2.
“During the inspection, the pharmacy was observed to be non-compliant with Board regulations, including requirements pertaining to verifying prescriptions, drug inventories, expired medications and sterile compounding,” Roach said in an e-mail.
The Board of Registration in Pharmacy subsequently ordered the pharmacy, located at 898 Washington St., to halt all pharmacy operations.
Roach did not specify whether any drugs had been recalled due to issues with compounding, in which medicines not available from drug manufacturers are prepared for individual patients, and did not respond to follow-up questions.
