I need some advice!
I am an oncology nurse who just accepted a position in a new chemo infusion clinic. I also found out shortly after that I was pregnant. When I spoke with the oncologist he said there would be minimal risk if I took all of the standard chemotherapy precautions (which I take very seriously). In our clinic we never mix chemotherapy drugs, that is all done by a pharmacist and we never spike any bags, they come already spiked with tubing primed with normal saline. So, my question is, is this really safe? I have not been able to speak with my OB yet to get her take on it all. I've been doing research night after night and I keep coming up with the same conclusion....half the people think you should never be near the stuff and half the people think it's ok with precautions. I'm so confused! Help!
