Monitoring of the management of waste is an essential component of auditing compliance with standard precautions.
Safe waste management prevents staff harm, reduces risk of spread of infection and promotes a clean, safe environment for patients.
Medical Audits healthcare waste management audit tool enables monitoring of practice to evidence compliance with standards and helps identify areas for further training and intervention.
Healthcare Risk waste is a component of risk registers in the majority of hospitals and Trusts- whether Acute or Community or Long Term Care or Primary Care, Risk waste is generated and has to be carefully managed to prevent risk to Healthcare workers and the Public.
Non Risk Waste needs to be separately stored and discarded so that the costs of managing risk waste can be kept to a minimum and so that any recyclable waste can be collected and disposed of according to National requirements
Segregation of waste into Risk and Non Risk waste is the first part of the waste management process.
Transport and Storage
Waste must then be separately stored, transported and disposed of meeting stringent National and International standards and guidelines. Internally, in healthcare facilities Healthcare Workers (HCW) transport of waste must be in specifically assigned risk waste or non risk waste containers
these then have to be cleaned and decontaminated after use.
Waste bags and bins must be kept clean and stored safely away from the public and away from Vermin.
Under EU law, the generator of the waste is ultimately responsible for disposal of the waste.
For this reason, Healthcare facilities must label and tag all waste and carefully monitor the waste disposal company to ensure all standards are met.
Transport of healthcare waste is governed by ADR regulations ls under the remit of the transport of dangerous goods (ADR) regulations - Transport of dangerous goods by road - and these too need to be followed to ensure all healthcare settings meet best practice standards and guidelines.
