Handling medical garbage inappropriately can be dangerous to the environment and the general public, according to an article on Newswire website.
For instance, medical wastes release airborne aerosols, some of which contain pathogens. Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) that causes lung infections such as pneumonia and influenza, for example, originates from medical wastes.
The process and procedures for disposing of these wastes can be an overwhelming assignment for small healthcare facilities.
To avoid running the risk of airborne infections, always dispose of medical waste in sealed containers. The containers shouldn't overstay unless kept in a refrigerated room.
