Cancer and Oncology Q 23

The nurse is preparing Cytoxan (cyclophosphamide). Safe handling of the drug should be implemented to protect the nurse from injury. Which of the following actions by the nurse should be corrected?
    A. The nurse should wear a mask and gloves
    B. Air bubbles should be expelled on wet cotton
    C. Review order to check the rate, solution, and frequency of the drug
    D. Vent vials after mixing

Correct Answer: A. The nurse should wear a mask and gloves

Option A: The nurse should be corrected if she is only wearing a mask and glove because additional protective equipment (gown, goggles, and face shields) should also be worn in handling chemotherapeutic drugs.

Option B: Air bubbles are expelled on wet cotton to prevent the spread of the chemotherapeutic agent particles.
Option C: Ensures the IV chemotherapy solution is correct and helps avoid medication error.
Option D: The vials should be vent after mixing to reduce the internal pressure.
