The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that approximately 8 million U.S. healthcare workers are potentially exposed to hazardous drugs, including pharmacy and nursing personnel, physicians, operating room personnel, environmental services workers, workers in research laboratories, veterinary care workers, and shipping and receiving personnel.1

"We are passionately committed to ensuring healthcare worker safety and protecting healthcare workers from exposure to hazardous drugs, which is growing at an alarming rate," said Tom Sutton , Vice President of Vascular Access Systems at B.Braun. "We know that oncology nurses and pharmacist technicians are especially susceptible to exposure to antineoplastic (drugs to treat cancer) and other hazardous drugs," added Sutton.

B.Braun's protective engineering devices include OnGuard™, a next-generation closed system drug transfer device (CSTD) with Tevadaptor™ Components, which underscores its commitment to helping protect healthcare workers from exposure to hazardous drugs. It meets the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health definition of a CSTD in actual drug testing with antineoplastic agents.
