I am new to oncology and have some concerns about how Chemotherapy is handled at my work. First, they use NO type of PPE when mixing, drawing up or hanging Chemo. Not even gloves. I asked about this when I first started working and they told me it was not necessary. ..
Also the room where the chemo is stored, mixed and thrown away is the same room where all the charting is done. Maybe its just me but sitting in a tiny room next to a open bin filled with hundreds of used Chemo vials doesn't seem safe.
I wonder if I should start looking for a New Job!

Thank you for all the information! I will definitely be making some calls.
