Abstract

Healthcare workers, who working on the frontline to handle antineoplastic hazardous drugs or hazardous drug waste, may have risks to their own health. They can be exposed to hazardous drugs in the air, or on work surfaces, medical equipments, and patient excreta. The organizations should implement a comprehensive prevention program that minimizes occupational exposure through engineering controls, good work practices, and personal protective equipment (PPE) and provides education about working with hazardous drugs. The most recent published guidelines from USP, Oncology Nursing Society (ONS), and The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) add more update information and contents on safety culture, environmental surveillance, personal protective equipment, engineering controls, closed systems transfer devices, and medical surveillance. Of note, the new version of guideline recommends that workers who are pregnant, trying to conceive or breastfeeding should be offered alternative duty. The 2020 versionof guideline consists of tenchapters: 1) definition of hazardous drugs and risk ofexposure; 2) risk management and engineering controls; 3) drug procurement, storage, reception, and transmission; 4) drug compounding; 5) administration of drugs; 6) management of wastes; 7) management of spills; 8) environmental decontamination and quality control; 9) staff education and training; 10) medical surveillance of healthcare workers handling hazardous drugs. The purpose of this guideline is to provide recommendations for institutions to develop, review, or revise standard procedures of safe handling practices for antineoplastic drugs. This guideline also provides important information for health care workers to minimize exposure to antineoplastic drugs.
