More than 8 million healthcare workers are exposed to hazardous drugs every year. Between receiving, preparing, administering, and transporting these drugs, numerous healthcare workers are exposed to hazardous chemicals daily. As the Baby Boomer population approaches retirement, more exposure is possible due to the increased patient volumes in hospitals, surgery centers, and nursing homes. Vernick & Associates is proud to offer solutions for the healthcare industry to reduce the risk of chemical exposure through the customized installation of cleanrooms and environmental rooms.
