Edina, MN Medical Waste FAQ and Related Searches
Medical waste is healthcare trash that contains infectious or potentially infectious items. It can come from hospitals, medical clinics, veterinary offices, dental clinics, research facilities, or medical laboratories. It can contain blood or other bodily fluids, or it can appear benign, like gloves or gowns.
According to the Medical Waste Tracking Act of 1988, it’s defined as any waste created during treatment, testing, immunization, research, or diagnosis of human beings and animals. Examples include sharps like scalpels or needles, tissue, fluids, glassware, swabs, culture dishes, or bandages.
- Expired vaccines
- Tissue from humans or animals
- Gowns, gloves, or gauze that may have blood on them
- Waste from rooms of patients with infectious diseases
- Needles, scalpels, and broken glass used in procedures
- Laboratory cultures, stocks, and contaminated culture paraphernalia
- Bedding from infected animals
The WHO identifies the 8 categories of medical waste as:
- Infectious waste
- Sharps waste
- Pathological waste
- Chemical waste
- Cytotoxic waste
- Pharmaceutical waste
- Radioactive waste
- Nonhazardous general waste
Those types cover all the potential varieties and sources of regulated and non-regulated healthcare waste.
You know hospitals and doctor’s offices create medical waste. But blood banks, dental clinics, and urgent care clinics create it too. Pharmacies, veterinary clinics, medical testing labs, research labs, nursing homes, hotels where patients stay, and funeral homes also create regulated waste.
Even an office building can generate biohazardous waste. Why? Because if someone gets a nosebleed at work and uses a tissue to stop it, they’ve created regulated waste. There was a hotel in Boston, next door to Mass General Hospital, was fined twice for medical waste violations from hotel guests.
