Medical Waste Disposal

October 25, 2023

Understanding the nuances of medical waste disposal starts with recognizing the different types of waste that hospitals generate. From solid waste like bandages to more hazardous items such as needles, each type of waste requires specialized handling. The challenge doesn't stop there.

State-specific guidelines dictate how each type of waste must be treated before disposal. Whether it's autoclaving, which employs high-pressure steam for sterilization, or incineration, which is a combustion process, the choice depends on various factors including the type of waste and existing regulations. And let's not forget, failure to adhere to these guidelines can result in severe penalties and repercussions that go beyond financial loss to affecting a facility's reputation.
