What is Clinical Waste?
Clinical waste consists of medical or healthcare waste that is potentially hazardous. For this reason it must be disposed of safely and carefully. The Controlled Waste Regulations 1990 defines clinical waste as:
“Any waste which consists wholly or partly of human or animal tissue, blood or other body fluids, excretions, drugs or other pharmaceutical products, swabs or dressings, syringes, needles or other sharp instruments, being waste which unless rendered safe may prove hazardous to any person coming into contact with it; and b. any other waste arising from medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, pharmaceutical or similar practice, investigation, treatment, care, teaching or research, or the collection of blood for transfusion, being waste which may cause infection to any person coming into contact with it.”
This can include:
- ‘Sharps’ – needles, syringes, scalpels and anything that had pierced or has the potential to pierce the skin
- Sharps contaminated with medicine or blood
- Blood stained overalls or gloves
- Cytotoxic Waste
- Lab Waste
- Infectious Waste
- Swabs, bandages or plasters
- Anatomical Waste.
Who is affected?
Clinical waste is a type of waste many healthcare organisations and private companies produce large volumes of. However other businesses can produce copious amounts of clinical waste, such as nurseries and nursing homes. Even tattooists and body piercing shops produce clinical waste that needs to be disposed of in accordance with environmental regulations.
