Closed-System Protective Devices
Specialized containers to place needles and other sharps into as mandated by law. In addition, these containers are used for chemotherapy waste products. An important part of treatment for cancer patients is the use of antineoplastic agents. Unfortunately, these agents have been associated with potential adverse health effects for the individuals who prepare, administer, and dispose of these medications. This is a major concern because there are more cancer patients than in the past, greater combinations of chemotherapeutic drugs are being used, more potent drugs are being used, and new procedures and settings have now been implemented. Often times the drugs used for chemotherapy have a similar structure or activity known to hazardous drugs. Many of these drugs are carcinogenic, teratogenic, and can create reproductive and organ toxicity. Closed system protective devices can virtually eliminate any exposure of toxic drugs to healthcare workers, custodial staff, or waste management employees.
