Hazardous Drugs ToolExplore this New Complimentary Tool to Support the Safe Handling of Hazardous Drugs

Joint Commission Resources, with financial support from BD Medical, has created a web-based self-assessment tool that will help you assess current state compliance with not only the requirements of the newly published USP <800> but also recognized national standards and leading best practices.

The publication of USP <800> has provided a regulatory framework for limiting exposure to hazardous drugs in the health care workplace. The chapter details requirements that touch program oversight, process, environment, garbing, training, environmental monitoring and medical surveillance where hazardous drugs are received, stored, transported, prepared, compounded, dispensed, or administered through disposal. Our new tool can help you dive into the intricacies of this crucial chapter and understand the best strategies to help your organization with compliance.

After completion of the self-assessment tool, you will be provided with a printable report that details areas of non-compliance and provides consultative recommendations for addressing gaps. 

Visit the tool now.

You can also receive more medication management compliance insights by attending our complimentary three-part Safe Handling of Hazardous Medications series.

With the anticipation of adoption by State Boards of Pharmacy, accreditation bodies and other regulatory agencies, this webinar is designed to provide an overview of the chapter’s scope and the importance of preparation. JCR has developed a web-based self-assessment tool and a toolkit in addition to this webinar series which will assist in the meeting of USP <800> requirements.
