Summary:

Hazardous drugs are medications that can cause cancer, mutate genes, cause fetal defects, or other adverse effects. When drugs such as chemotherapy, antiviral, or other hazardous agents are warranted for patients, healthcare staff preparing, administering, or in the immediate vicinity of these drugs may be exposed. Millions of healthcare personnel may or may not be protected from exposure. Safety standards, appropriate protective equipment/devices, and protective procedures exist to help prevent or minimize exposure. Are you protected?

Objectives:

The goal of this presentation is to discuss the reality of healthcare worker exposure to hazardous drugs and prevention strategies to lessen the risk of exposure.
  • Describe the possible adverse effects of occupational exposure to hazardous drugs.
  • Identify the types of healthcare workers at risk for exposure to hazardous drugs.
  • Describe ways to minimize exposure to hazardous drugs to show how we all play a part in minimizing occupational risk of hazardous drug exposure.
