Regulated medical waste needs to be handled differently than any other medical waste, so it is essential to know what items to look for when disposing of this type of waste. That is why you turn to the pros. Medical Waste Pros Boulder has a network of companies in Colorado that specialize in removing and transporting regulated waste for medical practices, clinics, hospitals, and more.
We know regulated medical waste is divided into six main categories:
Human anatomical wastes, organs, tissues, or body parts.
Sharps include any item that can easily penetrate the skin, waste bags, or cardboard boxes and induce subdermal inoculation of infectious agents. To qualify as medical sharps, articles must have been used in medical, research, or industrial laboratories on animals or humans.
Cultures and Stocks of Infectious Agents
Also known as microbiological waste, it is typically generated from clinical or research laboratory procedures involving communicable infectious diseases.
Waste that has potentially been contaminated with a highly communicable disease. Typically, it’s created by hospitalized patients or animals that have been isolated to protect others because their disease is highly infectious.
Contaminated Animal Carcasses, Body Parts, and Bedding
Waste from in vitro pharmaceutical testing, animals intentionally exposed to pathogens in research, or biological production.
Human Blood and Blood Products
Any blood products or components, including serum and plasma, or bodily fluids visually contaminated with blood. This includes fluids where it might be difficult to differentiate between bodily fluids and blood.
