Any business in operation generates waste. Such is a given. Often, that waste can be unique to the industry that created it, and the healthcare industry is no different in that respect. What is different is they type of waste that is created. The diagnosis, treatment, immunization, and research of diseases can create waste that is dangerous to both people and the environment. Such created the need for specialized forms of disposal. To simply throw it into the regular garbage is dangerous to all involved. Instead, various laws on federal, state, and even local levels regulate this waste for the safety of all involved. Handling as well as disposing of this material must be done properly to eliminate as much of the risk as possible. This means locations like labs, clinics, hospitals, and nursing homes as well as any other medical care facility must find a proper way to remove their medical waste. NY Medical Waste is a group of specialists ready to assist these locations.
Regulated and medical waste are terms that cover a wide variety of hazardous materials created by healthcare facilities. Medical procedures such as chemotherapy, medication, or treatment of diseases create unique forms of waste that must be dealt with properly.
Some forms include:
Chemotherapeutic – Contaminated material associated with chemo such as IV bags and tubing, gowns, syringes, and gloves
Pharmaceutical – Materials used in the diagnosis, treatment, curing, preventing, or managing of disease in people or animals
Pathological – Testing tissue samples, body parts, and fluids can create potentially infectious materials that can be dangerous.
These samples need to be treated as though they are dangerous every time, and disposed of properly. In fact, both the material and it’s container must be disposed of carefully and completely
Healthcare also requires meticulous records be kept for each patient and study, providing a complete history for that case. Across the multitude of cases in an area, facilities can generate large amounts of waste that contain sensitive information. Eventually, this material must be disposed of but in such a way as to protect your patients. Overclassified waste is also regulated, as it may not be dangerous as material, but the information is sensitive and must be handled appropriately. Such also includes outdated pharmaceuticals and any other waste that must be destroyed in a careful way.
Federal, state, and even local laws are in place to protect individuals from the hazards of medical and regulated waste in New York.
