USP <800> Facility and Sampling Fundamentals - Are You Getting Ready?

The publication of USP <800> has brought heightened awareness of the importance of proper facility construction and healthcare staff protection from hazardous drug (HD) exposure. While the regulatory status of USP <800> has been delayed due to appeals to USP<797>, most facilities are working towards implementing many of the elements within USP <800>.  When handling HDs, the following approach is needed for healthcare staff and product protection purposes, facility design, and patient safety: 

  • Having the appropriate facility and containment requirements to minimize worker exposure and maintain product quality/sterility;
  • HD identification:
  • Risk assessment for managing the use of HDs:
  • Development of a plan of action for managing the risks associated with HDs; and
  • Assessment of the downstream risks of HD exposure beyond the pharmacy and administration areas

This webinar will serve as an introduction to USP <800> with an emphasis on practical approaches to the design of the facility and HD containment approaches; determining where to sample, and how to use “environmental sampling” data to effectively minimize worker HD exposure. The webinar will be 1 hour long and will take place on June 10th at 12pm CT/1pm ET.

  • Pharmacy management and staff (hospitals, clinics, compounding)
  • Oncology nurses
