The following is a list of materials that are generally considered biomedical waste:

[BiomedicalWasteDisposal-Florida.com] What can I do to protect myself from biomedical wastes?

  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water after handling biomedical waste. Also, wash all areas of your body with soap and water that you think may have come into contact with biomedical waste, even if you are not sure your body actually touched the biomedical waste.
  • Keep all sores and cuts covered.
  • Immediately replace wet bandages with clean, dry bandages.
  • Wear disposable latex gloves when handling biomedical waste. Discard the gloves immediately after use.
  • Wear an apron or another type of cover to protect your clothes from contact with the waste. If your clothes become soiled, put on fresh clothes, and take a shower, if possible.
  • Launder or throw away clothes soiled with biomedical waste.
  • Promptly clean and disinfect soiled, hard-surfaced floors by using a germicidal or bleach solution and mopping up with paper towels.
  • Clean soiled carpets. First blot up as much of the spill as possible with paper towels and put the soiled paper towels in a plastic lined, leak-proof container. Then try one of the following:
  • Steam clean the carpet with an extraction method.
  • Scrub the carpet with germicidal rug shampoo and a brush. Soak the brush used for scrubbing in a disinfectant solution and rinse the brush. Let the carpet dry, and then vacuum it.
  • Never handle syringes, needles, or lancets with your hands. Use a towel, shovel, and/or broom and a dustpan to pick up these sharp objects. Dispose of them in a plastic soda pop bottle with a cap. Tape down the bottle cap. Then throw the bottle in the trash.

Sorting of medical wastes in hospital

At the site where it is generated, biomedical waste is placed in specially-labelled bags and containers for removal by biomedical waste transporters. Other forms of waste should not be mixed with biomedical waste as different rules apply to the treatment of different types of waste. Biomedical waste is treated by any or a combination of the following methods: incineration; discharge through a sewer or septic system; and steam, chemical, or microwave sterilization. Any tools or equipment that come into contact with potentially infectious material and are not disposable or designed for single-use are sterilised in an autoclave.

Household biomedical waste usually consists of needles and syringes from drugs administered at home disposable gloves, and bedsheets or other cloths that have come into contact with bodily fluids. Disposing of these materials with regular household garbage puts waste collectors at risk for injury and infection,[4] especially from sharps as they can easily puncture a standard household garbage bag. Many communities have programs in place for the disposal of household biomedical waste. Some waste treatment facilities also have mail-in disposal programs.

Biomedical waste treatment facilities are licensed by the local governing body which maintains laws regarding the operation of these facilities. The laws ensure that the general public is protected from contamination of air, soil, groundwater, or municipal water supply
