Each and every healthcare center, whether it is the hospitals, clinics, laboratories or pathologies etc, generate some amount of medical waste. And as of this, all these centers stay in touch with a reliable biohazard waste disposal organization for their services.

But after the waste is generated and before it gets picked up, the one who is liable for it is the one who generates it. This implies that each of these healthcare centers needs to manage and keep the waste secure in their premises.

For instance, in VA, Waste Management in the healthcare centers is totally according to the regulations of the state, and so does for the other states as well.

If you too run a healthcare center or are a part of it, you at least need to know the following important aspects regarding proper storage and upkeep of dangerous medical waste in your premises:

Authorization and Registration:

Some of the US states mandate the healthcare centers to get registered to become a well-recognized medical waste generator. They may also demand a ‘generator identification number’ for the purpose.

And no matter whether you generate an enormous or meager amount of medical waste, the condition to get registered should be met strictly, if your state asks for it.

Segregation of Waste:

You might not be well acquainted with this, the cost of disposal of regulated medical waste is a lot more than the general solid waste, generated from the households and hospitals etc.

Due to this, the medical waste should always be separated from the general waste, no matter whether the generated waste is small or large in amount.

Package And Labels:

For regulated medical waste, each state has its own packaging and labeling regulations. All these bylaws and regulations are meant for proper storage and transportation of waste and to prevent the people from their potential harms.

For instance, all the sharps wastes need to be discarded in proper, rigid, puncture-resistant and leak-proof containers and these wastes require special attention so that they do not get mixed with others.

Similarly, the plastic bags used inside the containers should be properly visible and strong enough to prevent tearing effects.

Storing Of The Medical Waste:

Ask the experts and they would tell you to get rid of the dangerous biohazardous waste as soon as possible. However, this is as impossible as it sounds to be. And as a measure, the states may have certain guidelines for the storage vicinity of the waste and the time limit.

Besides this, the regulated medical waste needs some other considerations too such as separating the waste from other general wastes, keeping the waste in a ventilated place and allowing only the authorized personnel to reach the place.

Proper biohazard waste disposal requires proper management of the waste at your premises. Consult the best waste management and disposal organizations of your region to learn the art of keeping the waste securely.
