MANAGING HAZARDOUS WASTE IN HEALTHCARE

 

COLLECTION

Containers must remain closed and prevent fluid leakage. They must be labeled or color-coded in accordance with the State Department of Health requirements. Facilities can use red containers and red waste liners or can apply approved biohazard warning labels to all containers.

MOVEMENT

Custodians and other healthcare personnel should wear proper PPE when managing biohazardous waste. In transit, the waste needs to be kept in red, puncture-resistant containers.

STORAGE

Medical waste requiring storage should be kept in red, leak-proof, puncture-resistant containers. The storage area should be well-ventilated to prevent odors and be inaccessible to pests.

DISPOSAL

Healthcare facilities must dispose of medical waste regularly. Common ways to dispose of waste include: incineration, steam sterilization, microwave treatment or chemical disinfection. Disposal can be done offsite or onsite depending on state regulation.

TRANSPORT SUPPLIES WITH EASE

Clean resident rooms with carts that carry all tools needed for the job. The High-Security Cart can store safety signs, mops, microfiber cloths and paper goods.
