Guidelines and recommendations have helped to change the way these medications are handled in healthcare and other settings. In many cases, workers no longer prepare these drugs without the use of a biological safety cabinet or containment isolator. In most workplaces, protective gloves and gowns help to reduce worker exposure to unsafe substances. Many institutions use a closed-system transfer device to help contain drugs during compounding and administration.
