Chemo exposure to nurses

  1. 0 I have been an oncology nurse for 4 years now. The hood we used to mix under was not hooked up properly and did not vent outside. I did not know this until inspection time. We have pharmacy now who mixes our meds. My question is are there nurses out there who experience any side effects from the chemo. I break out in hives and turn red my nose burns and I get headaches when I push adriamycin and halaven. I also have been having bad headaches for three months.Anyone else out there have any trouble?
