2014 NIOSH Hazardous Med List

Phenytoin and fosphenytoin are now considered "hazardous" by NIOSH on their 2014 list... It is currently stocked in ADCs in our emergency room and critical care areas. Are people removing phenytoin/fosphenytoin from ADCs and mixing all doses in a chemo hood? Is anyone making an expection in their hazardous drug handling policy for STAT meds?
