The Importance Of Medical Waste Safety
In every hospital or medical facility, there is an unseen potential problem lurking in the corners: medical waste. Medical waste is a broad term to imply any byproduct of a medical procedure, and it becomes a problem when it is improperly handled or disposed of. It is not a sexy subject, but a very important one because managing medical waste properly means maintaining human health and environmental integrity. The consequences to mismanaging medical waste can vary from a mild warning to widespread health problems caused by transferable diseases, environmental pollution and even possibly death.
