ABSTRACT
Good Storage Practice (GSP) is one of five measures to provide qualified medicines for patients. Currently, the hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), Vietnam, strive to apply the GSP model to improve the preservation of drugs. This study was established to survey drug storage facts according to GSP requirements at the HCMC University of Medicine and Pharmacy Hospital, the HCMC Orthopedic Trauma Hospital, and Children's Hospital 1, all in HCMC, Vietnam. Methods: The study employed retrospective research methodology and was a cross-sectional study based on GSP requirements. Results: Three hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, have made progress and satisfied some of the GSP requirements. To satisfy all the requirements of GSP, all three hospitals in HCMC must solve the remaining problems. Conclusion: This is a model for other hospitals to apply GSP standards for storing drugs in hospital conditions.
