The USP 800 chapter was created to protect all healthcare personnel who handle or administer Hazardous Drugs (HD) and those that handle trace contaminated HD waste and soiled linens.
Below is a list of potentially affected personnel, and a brief USP 800 Introduction of the sections that could impact your organization. For more details please feel free to contact us with questions or you can find the full chapter on the USP website.
Reviewing all of the USP 800 requirements makes implementation seem like an intimating task. Let us be your resource to help ease the burden. Use our USP 800 implementation checklist to get your organization started. With implementation consulting, we can compare your formulary (inventory) to the NIOSH Hazardous Drug List and help you identify HDs within your organization.
