Be Aware of the Hazardous Potential of Some Non-Chemo Meds
Hospitals will review their hazardous med policies and procedures.
That's because the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) added 19 chemo and 15 non-chemo meds to their hazardous med list. Plus enforcement of USP Chapter <800> will start in 2018.
Continue to use proper precautions with ALL chemo meds. Exposure may lead to cancer, birth defects, or other problems.
