  • 1.  Food Trays

    In reading about USP 800 and contamination, it got me thinking about the possible contamination of food trays in patient's receiving chemotherapy. If chemotherapy is excreted by the body for up to 48 hrs, does this need precautions as well. For example, if a patient has a bleeding mouth sore. How do you do it in your institution?
