As we all know, medical waste includes five categories, infectious waste, injury waste, pharmaceutical waste, chemical waste, and pathological waste. In the previous article, we analyzed the treatment methods of infectious waste and injury waste, and in today’s article, Boyue will share the treatment methods and detailed classification of several other medical wastes, hoping to help you.

1. Pharmaceutical waste (expired, eliminated, deteriorated or contaminated waste drugs. These include the following:
(1) Bulk discarded general drugs, such as: antibiotics, over-the-counter drugs, etc.
(2) Waste cytotoxic drugs and genotoxic drugs, including: carcinogenic drugs, suspected carcinogenic drugs, immunosuppressants.
(3) Discarded vaccines, blood products, etc.

Correct collection method

(1) Batches of expired, obsolete, deteriorated or contaminated waste drugs shall be collected and registered by the Department of Pharmacy according to the type, and then returned to the manufacturer or handed over to the hazardous waste disposal agency for disposal.
(2) A small amount of pharmaceutical waste, including discarded cytotoxic drugs and genotoxic drugs, can be directly placed into medical garbage bags and medical trash cans used to contain infectious waste, but should be indicated on the label.

2. Chemical waste (wasted chemicals with toxicity, corrosiveness, flammability and explosiveness. These include the following:

3. Pathological waste (human waste generated during diagnosis and treatment, medical laboratory animal carcasses, etc.) These include the following:

(1) Abandoned human tissues, organs, etc. generated during surgery and other diagnosis and treatment.
(2) Tissues and carcasses of medical laboratory animals.

It is strictly forbidden to dispose of fetal remains and infant remains with a gestational age of more than 16 weeks or a fetal weight of more than 500g as medical waste.
(3) The placenta after childbirth belongs to the mother, and no unit or individual may buy or sell the placenta. Women should go through placental procedures with a medical institution before delivery, and file them with the medical history for future reference.

In addition to the above three categories, there is also a kind of “non-medical waste” that also needs special attention~

4. Medical non-medical waste (no harm to people and the environment or very low degree of harm, not contaminated by patients’ blood, body fluid secretions and excretions, can be disposed of as domestic waste, or standardized recycling. )

Such as: diapers, diapers, sanitary napkins, toilet paper and other daily necessities used by patients; B ultracouplant wipe paper, etc.; disposable pillow towels, non-woven fabrics, outer packaging, etc.; Chemical ice packs, shoe covers, sleeve covers, skin cleaning wipes, hand wipes; General reagents, empty bottles of disinfectants, etc.
