Alerts have been added to the Order Entry and the eMAR applications

For the proposed 2018 list, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) presents the policy for how drugs are assigned to the 3 hazardous drug classifications using a new peer reviewed 5 Category system based on evidence of the hazard:

  • Category 1—Special Handling Information
  • Category 2—Insufficient Toxicity Information Available to Meet NIOSH Definition of Hazardous Drug
  • Category 3—Available Information Shows a Toxic Effect that Does Not Meet the NIOSH Definition of a Hazardous Drug
  • Category 4—Available Toxicity Information Does Not Demonstrate or Support a Determination that the Drug Meets the NIOSH Definition of a Hazardous Drug
  • Category 5—Available Toxicity Information Demonstrates or Supports a Determination that the Drug Meets the NIOSH Definition of a Hazardous Drug
