Management of Hospital Wastes


All types of health-care facilities like hospitals, nursing homes, clinical and pathological laboratories, medical research centres and veterinary hospitals generate hospital or biomedical waste. Some of these wastes are potentially hazardous to human beings, animals and the environment. The rate of generation of biomedical waste in Indian hospitals is approximately 1.0-2.5 Kg per bed per day. The Union Ministry of Environment and Forest, Government of India has notified the Biomedical waste (management & handling) Rules, 1998 under the provision of Environment Protection Act, 1986. Under these rules, all health-care facilities will have to make the necessary arrangement to ensure that the hospital waste is properly handled and managed without adverse effects to human beings and the environment. Biomedical waste refers to any waste that includes anatomical waste, pathological waste, infectious waste, hazardous waste and other waste generated in hospitals, nursing homes, pathological laboratories and other health care facilities (Banerjee & Bagchi, 1999). A substantial part of the biomedical waste is potentially hazardous due to its infectious nature (USEPA, 1978,1986). Such hazardous bio-medical wastes include surgical and pathological waste, disposable syringes, injection needles, microbiological wastes, discarded chemicals and drugs, waste from dialysis units (Nanda & Tiwari, 2000).......
