It is the duty of every medical office/hospital to make sure that all are aware of the proper medical waste disposal. Doing this will ensure the safety of the staff and patients and will also save the time and money.
We can easily see that every medical office remains busy. Besides this, when things become chaotic mistakes can happen easily. One of the biggest mistakes is disposing of medical waste. Failing to do so can cause serious health issues and can risk the safety of many people.
It is the duty of the medical organization to provide proper training to their staff regarding medical waste disposal. Everyone should be aware of putting medical waste into the right colored bag. Many times, the newly hired staff put medical waste in the standard trash. Therefore, proper guidelines should be provided to the newly hired employees who are not aware of medical waste disposal.
Defining Medical Waste:
Medical waste is anything that has sufficient amount of blood and bodily fluids. These contain pathogens that are very much harmful to people coming in contact with them. Therefore, it is essential to dispose of the medical waste properly. It should properly be placed in red bags.
All employees of the company should have proper training so as to keep the level of errors to a minimum. Medical waste also includes the material that may be contaminated with blood, microbiological and other pathological wastes. These materials are equally harmful as they also contain harmful bacteria. It can cause serious health issues to people getting in contact with them.
Urine and feces are not medical waste. One should not place diapers and urine cups in red bags.
