Proper Medical Waste Disposal
Medical waste disposal can be confusing and intimidating when you are handling the work yourself. Improper disposal can lead to legal and health ramifications.
Avoid common mistakes with medical waste disposal by following these rules of thumb:
- Don’t move medical waste to a different location. Whether your facility relocates anywhere in Orlando, it is much safe to schedule a pickup by a qualified medical waste service to transport your waste for you.
- Don’t place alcohol, aerosols, or any other chemicals into medical waste. Certain chemicals and different types of medical waste are considered hazardous. Be sure to get an expert opinion on disposal of chemicals you may have collected, regardless of how small the volume.
- Don’t discard pharmaceuticals into other types of medical waste. Pharmaceuticals should have their own specifically designed containment units in order to ensure safe disposal.
- Don’t leave medical waste containers open. Also, make sure to seal any full waste containers so that they don’t topple and spill infectious contents.
- Don’t ignore required training for handling medical waste required by OSHA. Lack of training causes unnecessary risk to those ignorant on proper protocols.
