Closed System Transfer Devices for Drug Administration

April 2011 : State of Pharmacy Compounding - Vol.8 No. 4 - Page #15
Category: Closed System Drug-Transfer Devices (CSTDs)

Implementation of closed system transfer devices for drug administration continues to lag behind use in the pharmacy; just 32% of facilities are using these devices on the nursing floor, while 44% use them for compounding in the pharmacy. Facilities administering hazardous drugs without the benefit of a CSTD either see no need to do so or cite budget constraints and price concerns as their reasons for not doing so.
