November 2016 - Vol. 13 No. 11 - Page #74

For further information, see Hand Hygiene and Garbing for Nonhazardous Sterile Compounding in the September issue of Pharmacy Purchasing & Products (PP&P), as this article builds on the information presented therein.

Containment is realized through the use of properly functioning primary and secondary engineering controls, as well as proper work practices, including a precise approach to donning and doffing personal protective equipment (PPE).
