Reassurance: No tainted steroid use reported in Arizona

News reports have tied recent outbreaks of meningitis around the nation to a steroid solution from a Massachusetts compounding pharmacy.  None of these cases are in Arizona, and in fact, none of the affected steroid solution has been reported in Arizona.

Tucson Medical Center performs its own compounding, using advanced facilities in the TMC Pharmacy – and does not use compounds from outside vendors.  This applies to medications used within the hospital and in outpatient settings, such as the TMC Pain Clinic and Outpatient Procedure Center.

For updated information on the meningitis outbreak, check with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control at www.cdc.gov.
