Purpose: In October 2011, the University of North Carolina Medical Center (UNCMC) implemented drug vial optimization (DVO) for all of its hazardous drugs. DVO is appropriately extending the beyond use date (BUD) of hazardous drugs through the use of appropriate engineering controls, personal protective equipment, and closed system transfer devices.
