What is Regulated Medical Waste?
Regulated medical waste is a broad term that covers several types of medical waste. It can be categorized into 6 main categories:
Isolation Waste – Waste that has potentially been contaminated with a highly communicable disease. It comes from animals or humans who have been isolated to prevent the spread of their disease.
Contaminated Animal Carcasses, Body Parts and Bedding – Animals that have potentially been exposed to pathogens in research, biologicals production, or in vivo pharmaceuticals testing produce regulated waste.
Pathological Waste – Biological wastes including organs, tissues, body parts, or human anatomical wastes.
Human Blood and Blood Products – Any type of blood disposal (includes serum, plasma, and other blood components) and bodily fluids that are contaminated with blood. If you can’t tell if a fluid has been contaminated with blood, it also belongs in this category.
Contaminated Sharps – Sharps are anything that can pierce, prick, or puncture the skin and spread infectious agents. Medical sharps have been used in research or medical procedures and may been contaminated.
Cultures and Stocks of Infectious Agents – Microbiological waste that usually originates from clinical or research procedures involving communicable infectious agents.
Regulated medical waste is commonly produced in many industries. Hospitals, dentist’s offices, veterinarians, funeral homes, tattoo parlors and more deal with regulated waste materials. Here are some common regulated medical waste items:
- Items saturated with blood or Other Potentially Infectious Materials (or OPIM)
- Containers, catheters, or tubes containing blood, blood products or OPIM
- Glass pipettes, slides and tubes
