Hazardous drug safety
Learn about the dangers of hazardous drug exposure―they are studied, documented and very real
About 75,000 Canadian healthcare workers, including pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, nurses and other caregivers are potentially exposed to hazardous drugs, according to Carex Canada.1 This exposure is putting them at risk of both short- and long-term health issues such as headaches, hair loss, nausea, organ damage, reproductive problems,2 developmental impairment, genetic issues and even cancer.3
To address these risks, healthcare facilities need to comply with new and existing standards, guidelines and recommendations. Closed system transfer devices (CSTDs) are recommended as part of a comprehensive safety system. They can help reduce environmental contamination and exposure for a safer environment for staff, patients and visitors.
