What Is Medical Waste?
According to the Medical Waste Tracking Act of 1988, medical waste is “any solid waste that is generated in the diagnosis, treatment or immunization of human beings or animals.” If you have a bloody tissue sitting on the table inside of a medical facility, you’ve got yourself some medical waste. A medical waste disposal service should collect this waste in a timely and professional manner. Of course, liquids such as blood, saliva, semen, and vaginal secretions are among the most obvious forms of waste that you would find on the edge of a scalpel or tip of a syringe, but what often gets overlooked are amniotic fluids, cerebrospinal and synovial fluid, pericardial and pleural fluid, and peritoneal, which are all considered forms of medical waste. Even without any known traces of the above-mentioned substances, any medical utensil which is discarded is also considered a form of medical waste, and need to be disposed of properly (covered, in sealed containers). Make sure you place this waste in the proper red bag or container which BioWaste will collect.
You now have a choice when it comes to managing your facility, practice or clinic’s biomedical waste needs. With unparalleled service options, no long term contracts, and an ability to handle medical, hazardous, and pharmaceutical waste, BioWaste is the hassle-free choice in biomedical waste management solutions and the medical waste disposal service in Tennessee that you can rely on.
