Treatment of Pathological Waste and Other Medical Waste

In the previous two articles, we have learned the classification and treatment of infectious waste, damaging waste, pharmaceutical waste, and chemical waste. Today, we will share the treatment of two other types of medical waste, which are pathological waste and medical waste. Non-medical waste.

Pathological Waste

Human waste and medical laboratory animal carcasses generated in the process of diagnosis and treatment.

  1. Abandoned human tissues, organs, etc. generated during surgery and other diagnosis and treatment processes.
  2. Tissues and corpses of medical laboratory animals.
  3. Discarded human tissue, pathological wax blocks, etc. after pathological sectioning.
  4. The placenta of pregnant women with infectious diseases, suspected infectious diseases and sudden infectious diseases of unknown cause.
  5. A stillborn fetus with a gestational age of less than 16 weeks or a fetal weight of less than 500 grams.


The right way to collect

Put directly into medical waste bags and covered medical trash cans.

Fetal remains and infant remains shall be included in the management of remains in accordance with the Regulations on Funeral and Interment Management. It is strictly forbidden to dispose of the remains of fetuses and infants with a gestational age of more than 16 weeks or a fetal weight of more than 500g as medical waste.

The placenta after childbirth is owned by the mother, and no unit or individual may buy or sell the placenta. Before giving birth, mothers should go through placenta processing procedures with medical institutions and file them with medical history for future reference.

Medical non-medical waste:

There is no harm to people and the environment or the degree of harm is very low, and it is not polluted by the patient’s blood, body fluid secretions and phlegm, and can be disposed of as domestic waste, or for standardized recycling.

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

Note: For some single-use devices or items that are difficult to confirm whether they are contaminated in actual operation, they should still be disposed of as medical waste.

 The right way to collect

For infusion bottles/bags that are not polluted by the patient’s blood, body fluids and excrement, the infusion straps and needles should be removed, and they should be stored and recycled separately.

Infusion bottles/bags with the following conditions shall not be included in recyclable household waste even if they are not contaminated with the patient’s blood, body fluids and excrement.

  1. Infusion bottles/bags used in infectious disease areas, or used for infectious disease patients, suspected infectious disease patients, and other patients who have taken isolation measures should be disposed of as infectious medical waste.
  2. Infusion bottles/bags involving the use of cytotoxic drugs (such as tumor chemotherapy drugs, etc.) should be disposed of as medicinal medical waste.
