Compounding Hazardous Drugs
Pharmacists | Nurses
Safe and responsible handling starts with you. USP <800> standards are designed to protect you and your extended team, from pharmacy through to nursing.
Administering Hazardous Drugs
Nurses | Doctors
A nurse’s instinct is to put patients first. With USP <800>, it’s time to focus on your safety, as well as the safety of those around you.
Pharmacy can’t do it alone. Nursing can’t do it alone. It takes an entire organization working together to provide the safest environment for health care workers.
