Common Medical Waste Defined
General or common medical waste is anything that isn’t regulated by state or federal statutes, and doesn’t carry any type of infectious agent. It’s usually no different from any other office or household waste, with a few exceptions, including:
- PPE, unless saturated with blood or other potentially infectious material
- Empty IV bags, bottles and tubing (without needles)
- Empty stool or urine containers, Foley/catheter bags
- Diapers, chux and bed pads
- Disposable basins, bedpans, urinals
- Adhesive bandages
- Exam gloves
- Sanitary napkins and tampons (personal)
- Unused medical products and supplies
Medical Waste Pros can collect your general medical waste on a regular basis, especially if you have regulated medical waste that needs to be collected and disposed of properly.
