Advancing Global Hospital Care

Pharmacy Services and Compounding

  • Baxter is a leading provider of a comprehensive range of outsourced aseptic preparations and services.

  • Baxter has more than 30 years of experience in working in partnership with the HSE and the private sector to deliver aseptic preparation services. Through collaborative partnership arrangements with hospitals, Baxter has a unique understanding of the challenges of delivering an efficient pathway from drug procurement through aseptic preparation to drug delivery to the patient.   

  • With state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and broad expertise in medical devices and pharmaceuticals, Baxter is relied upon by hospitals across the country to provide tailored, seamless support as they need it.

  • Crucially, at the heart of everything we do is the necessity to maintain the highest calibre of quality management, to ensure patient safety and clinical excellence.  Our compounding units are licensed to cGMP standard by the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA).

  • This robust quality management commitment runs from the very beginning of our manufacturing process all the way through to the patient’s bedside and is integral to everything we do.

Outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy (OPAT)

  • OPAT offers several advantages to both patients and healthcare providers. It allows the patient to receive their treatment at home, and has been shown to deliver successful outcomes whilst reducing costs.

  • Baxter enables the HSE to realise the benefits of OPAT in a number of ways. Baxter Infusor devices support moving suitable OPAT patients to a self-care model (S-OPAT) whether it is for antibiotics requiring once daily doses or multiple doses. Additionally we partner with nursing providers to train and support hospital clinicians and home patients, ensuring they are comfortable with the transition from hospital to home and are ready to self-care. With over 30 years’ experience of providing high quality aseptic compounding supported by extensive stability data, we can help you release the burden on your bed capacity, by treating patients at home.

  • Baxter deliver the compounded, ready to use infusion devices along with the ancillaries and equipment needed, direct to the patients home. In addition we can provide a flexible nursing service that can train both patients and community staff. Further support is also available through our Customer Services Homecare team. 

  • In addition to providing an S-OPAT service, Baxter also supports the HSE H-OPAT (nurse administered) programme with our compounded ready to use infusion devices.

  • Our particular focus on maximising the number of self-caring patients helps reduce the overall cost of the nursing.
