Medical Waste Pros in Brooklyn is part of a network of companies in New York that remove and transport regulated waste for medical practices, hospitals, and clinics. Regulated medical waste requires different handling than any other type of waste. What falls into the category of medical waste?
Regulated medical waste is split into six main categories:
Human anatomical organs, tissues, or body parts fit this category.
Sharps can easily penetrate the skin, waste bags, or cardboard boxes and induce subdermal inoculation of infectious agents. Contaminated sharps are items used in medical research or industrial laboratories on animals or humans.
Let’s clarify that. The box-knife blade a shipping clerk disposes of when it is dull is not regulated medical waste. It’s been used on boxes, not people or animals, but it is still sharp and requires sharps handling. Should there ever be any doubt about sharps being regulated waste or not, err on the side of discretion. Assume that what you don’t know can hurt you.
Stocks and Cultures of Infectious Agents
This regulated waste is usually generated in a research lab or a clinic from communicable disease procedures. It is also called microbiological waste.
Isolation waste is capable of transmitting a highly communicable disease. Hospitalized patients or animals put into isolation to protect others due to a diagnosis of a condition that is highly contagious will create this type of waste.
Contaminated Carcasses, Body Parts, and Bedding from Animals
If an animal was used for in vitro pharmaceutical testing, intentional exposure to pathogens in research, or biological production, its body and bedding would become regulated medical waste.
Human Blood and Blood Products
Blood products or components of blood, including serum and plasma or bodily fluids, visually contaminated with blood are assumed to be infectious. This includes fluids where it might be challenging to differentiate between bodily fluids and blood.
