Implement a Comprehensive HD Spill Management Program
By Fred Massoomi, RPh, PharmD, FASHP

A hazardous drug (HD) spill presents one of the highest risks for exposure to the individual handling the medication, nearby staff, the hospital environment, and patients. Spills can occur at any point during the HD management process; for example, vials may arrive broken from the distributor. In addition, spill risk exists during HD preparation and use, and at the time of HD wasting. Each step of the HD handling process must be defined as part of the spill management program.
