CriticalPoint’s USP <800> 2017 Study Results: An Initial Roadmap to Compliance

USP General Chapter <800> Hazardous Drugs—Handling in Healthcare Settings provides standards for the safe handling of hazardous drugs (HDs) to reduce the risk of exposure to health care personnel, patients, their families, and the health care environment.

Focusing on staff safety, USP <800> is based on well-established, replicated data. Contrary to popular thought, the chapter does not represent new thinking; rather, it establishes reasonable and long overdue requirements to protect staff who must handle these drugs to provide care to their patients. Though initially published in 2016, and originally scheduled to become officially enforceable July 1, 2018, USP decided to delay the chapter’s official enforcement date until December 1, 2019.

CriticalPoint added USP 800 Compliance items to its long standing USP 797 Compliance Study. This webinar will discuss an overview of findings, however Eric Kastango and Kate Douglass will focus on an explanation of CriticalPoint’s Initial Roadmap to USP <800> Compliance which uses five specific Key Performance Elements (KPEs) that come directly from USP <800> as a guide an organization’s pursuit of staff and workplace safety.
