What’s The Deal About Medical Waste Disposal?

Continuing, if you work in any area of the medical field you may have witnessed that there are changes being made in regards to how you must handle items like infectious waste, out of date medications, and sharps or needles. 

As a result, you must dispose of medical waste in a proper and safe manner. For instance, they cannot be just taken out with your regular trash as this puts individuals, including yourselves, at potential risk. So, in order to protect people there have been specific guidelines set in place by individual states and the federal government. To read more about the specific guidelines in your state please click here. We are working on creating our own pages for this in the future.
