Dispensing Chemotherapy Properly

Properly dispensing any chemotherapy ensures the safety of the medical professional dispensing it as well as the medical professional administering it.  For safety reasons, the medical professional dispensing and administering chemotherapy must wear PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that consists of a chemotherapy gown, gloves, a mask and goggles. Chemotherapy is always properly dispensed under a chemotherapy hood that has a filtration system that filters the air out into the safety filter.  This filtration system prevents contamination into the environment. The chemotherapy is dispensed by using a needleless system to prevent any exposure to the chemotherapy.

Finally, the chemotherapy that has been safely dispensed is placed into a clearly marked chemotherapy bag for its safe transport to the medical professional administering it as well as the canine or feline patient getting the chemotherapy.
