ABSTRACT
Because of the widespread risk that hospital personnel can receive toxic exposure to hazardous drugs, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has issued an advisory on medical surveillance of workers exposed to hazardous drugs. • Occupational exposures can lead to acute effects such as skin rashes or gastrointestinal complaints, chronic effects such as adverse reproductive events (miscarriage, congenital malformation, etc.), and cancer. • Employee health managers should develop a medical surveillance plan as part of a safety and health program that includes engineering controls, good work practices, and personal protective equipment (PPE).
