Why precaution should we take while handling chemotheraphy medicine ?

Dear doctor , in dealing with patient who taken the chemotheraphy pills , why we need to be very careful when handling their urine or pass-out? Is it the chemotheraphy pills contains itself that makes the patient urine is dangerous, or we need to avoid it, is just because we dont want to get sick like diarrhea , fever and etc? What is the risk we might have, if we dont handle it carefully enough?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
A person taking chemotherapy is vulnerable to all kind of infections and anaemia. The pills are quite harmful for a normal body as they tend to decrease the growth of all growing cells of the body. As these drugs are excreted in urine mostly, so it is better to handle it carefully.
