Hazardous drug safety

Gain the system benefits. Lose the health risks.


Healthcare workers who work with hazardous drugs may be exposed to them, which can cause serious health consequences like skin rashes, reproductive issues, leukemia and other cancers.1 Despite implementing protective measures over the years, such as laminar downflow hoods, special masks, gloves, and vials vs. ampules, healthcare facilities are still putting their personnel at risk.2 BD hazardous drug systems, however, have been clinically proven to reduce the chance of exposure by staying closed from drug preparation to administration.
