Safe management of wastes from Healthcare activities

The term health-care waste includes all the waste generated within health-care facilities, research centres and laboratories related to medical procedures. In addition, it includes the same types of waste originating from minor and scattered sources, including waste produced in the course of health care undertaken in the home (e.g. home dialysis, self-administration of insulin, recuperative care). Most waste generated in healthcare establishments can be treated as regular solid municipal waste. But a varying proportion of HCW requires special attention, including sharps (e.g. needles, razors, scalpels), pathological waste, other potentially infectious waste, pharmaceutical waste, biological waste, and hazardous chemical waste. Collectively, these wastes are known as “special healthcare waste”.
