Hospitals and specialty clinics maintain a standard process for prescribing, preparing, storing, dispensing and administering chemotherapy drugs to minimize the possible adverse consequences of handling hazardous medications. With USP 800 initiatives a more aggressive focus exists. As everyone knows, there are quite a few touch points, starting with the receiving of medications into the pharmacy department. This entry point is a great place to utilize a durable, reclosable pre-printed bag for safely identifying and handling hazardous medications. After getting wiped down at the receiving area these bags are convenient for moving medications to the area of preparation or the designated shelving area and bins. Once again after being prepared these simple pre-printed chemotherapy and hazardous drug bags can be used for safely storing prepped medications prior to leaving the preparation area. Once ready for dispensing, these simple bags can provide proper warning as well as a safe means to transport medications to the med or patient room.
Chemotherapy Drug Transport Bags and Hazardous Drug Transport Bags are versatile and with the suitable size bag can accommodate the transport of a CSTD (Closed System Drug-Transfer Device) or even used tubing, syringes and PPE to the point of proper yellow bucket disposal. These bags are durable, economical and a simple tool in the safe drug handling process and USP 800 compliance.
