SURFACE SAMPLING – HAZARDOUS DRUG RESIDUES

Healthcare workers who prepare or administer hazardous drugs or who work in areas where these drugs are used may be exposed to these agents in their workplace.

 

More than 5.5 million healthcare workers are potentially exposed to hazardous drugs. (NIOSH)
