- Annually, in the US alone, over 5.5 million healthcare workers are inadvertently exposed to hazardous
therapeutic drugs, such as chemotherapy, antivirals,
antibiotics, hormones, and nuclear medicine drugs.
- Danger of exposure to these drugs can range from skin
rashes, infertility and miscarriage, to birth defects, and
possibly some types of cancers
- Given the significant toxic exposure risks in the
hospital environment, the National Institute for
Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Oncology
Nursing Society (ONS), and American Society of Health
System Pharmacists (ASHP) have all recommended
adopting closed systems to minimize
drips, leaks or spills of hazardous drugs.
- The Q-FLO™ family of product can provide for cost effective and compelling CSTD solutions for compliance with USP 800 for the full spectrum of hazardous drug applications, ranging from compounding, transport, bed side administration, and disposal.
