The goal of USP General Chapter <800> is to ensure that clinicians safely handle hazardous drugs and are protected from drug exposure.

  • Clinicians need to have chemo-rated protective equipment, appropriate spill and clean-up items and closed transfer devices to draw the hazardous drug out of its vial and administer it to the patient.
  • Those who admix sterile hazardous drugs will be required to adhere to specific room and hood requirements
  • Hazardous drug preparations should be clearly labeled and packaged separately in case of breakage and spills

Anyone who handles these drugs needs to be in compliance by December 2019.

Who should attend:
  • Supply Chain Administrators and Leaders
  • Clinical Leaders & Specialists
  • Pharmacy Leaders
  • Oncology Medical Directors
