USP <800> and Surface Contamination: Part 2: Developing a Compliance Checklist

This 1 hour webinar is a follow up to our previous June 10 webinar. Don’t wait for USP <800> to become enforceable! Despite the chapter being informational and not compendially applicable, coming into compliance with USP <800> is key for the protection of your staff, the environment, and for state boards of pharmacy and accrediting/regulatory authorities. The session will review how to develop a USP <800> Compliance checklist for your facility. A checklist should encompass the following items: identifying the risks, conducting a facility walk-through, performing an assessment of risk, review of engineering controls, performing a hazardous drug inventory review, review of PPE, spills and cleanup, training, medical surveillance, locations for surface contamination monitoring and more. Creating a hazardous drug surface monitoring plan is equally critical whether you are constructing a new facility or are an existing facility. Determining how and where to sample, which drugs to monitor, and how to interpret the results will allow your facility to monitor and assess the downstream risks of HD exposure within the pharmacy, patient administration areas, and beyond.
