  • 1.  Chemotherapy Precautions

    Posted 29 days ago
    ​Would anyone be willing to share how their hospital and infusion center is handling blood/body fluid waste of patients receiving chemotherapy?  The ONC guidelines indicate that we should be double gloving and gowning to empty BSCs, hats, and urinals for the first 48 hours after chemo administration.  What precautions are you taking at your facility when drawing labs or disposing of urine or stool for active chemo patients?
