Medical Waste Disposal Bakersfield, CA
One commonality with all medical facilities is medical waste, or bio-hazardous waste. Unlike regular refuse and trash produced by homes and businesses, medical waste includes materials exposed to bodily fluids and is therefore potentially infectious, even deadly.
Biomedical waste may be solid or liquid. Examples of infectious waste include discarded blood, sharps, unwanted microbiological cultures and stocks, identifiable body parts, other human or animal tissue, used bandages and dressings, discarded gloves, other medical supplies that may have been in contact with blood and body fluids.
In California the Department of Public Health administers and enforces regulations intended to protect the public health from potentially hazardous bio-waste through the Medical Waste Management Act.
