Hazardous drugs pose a unique risk for the staff and patients of facilities who compound and administer them

A closed-loop solution that incorporates established standards into daily practice helps mitigate those risks and supports your efforts to comply with USP pharmacy compliance. This is essential for staff and patient safety and overall quality of medications compounded.

What is USP 800?

Each year more than 8 million U.S. healthcare workers are potentially exposed to harmful Hazardous Drugs (HD). Possible side effects of HD exposure include headaches, hair loss, vision issues, reproductive health effects, and increased cancer risk. 

USP 800 Hazardous Drugs – Handling in Healthcare Settings was developed to provide new quality standards for handling Hazardous Drugs in all settings, with an end goal of ensuring the safety of both patients and staff who come in contact with HDs. It addresses specific areas in which pharmacy typically drives accountability, including:

  • Staff requirements, such as the Designated Person role and acknowledgement of risk
  • Facility standards, including storage, compounding, and containment
  • Transfer device requirements
  • Environmental quality control
  • PPE usage
  • Spill prevention and management
