Currently we have a CACI that is directly vented to the ouside however we no longer compound chemotherapy and this will be removed and changed the room changed to positive pressure. During the weekly/monthly cleaning, the SCA can be overwhelmed with fumes despite wearing an N95 mask. I was wondering what would be the best option to facilitate venting of these fumes; taking breaks, proping the door to the SCA, or possibly having an exhaust fan installed where the CACI currently is connected?

What is the cause of the fumes, the cleaning agents? What type of cleaning agent are you using? What are the air changes of the room?

If you are using a CACI for HD compounding and it is a C-SCA, then the room needs to be under negative-pressure and have at least 12 ACPHs. This is critical information that every one person working in these rooms should know.
