Reducing Cytotoxic Drug Exposure in Healthcare: Determinants Influencing Cleaning Effectiveness
Many cytotoxic drugs used to treat cancer and other diseases are known to be carcinogenic or mutagenic. Health care workers who handle these drugs may be at risk of developing adverse health effects such as organ toxicities, reproductive problems, tumours, and cancer. Although several guidelines for cytotoxic drug handling exist, studies have shown that contamination can occur even when proper engineering controls are in place. Using laboratory research methods, this project examined the effectiveness of the cleaning agents used to clean surfaces contaminated with the three cytotoxic drugs most...
