Regulations You Need to Know

Regulated “Medical Waste“

biohazardous-waste-disposal

Biomedical waste is outlined in Georgia Administrative Code (Rule 391-3-4-.15) as:

“(a) Pathological waste, which means all recognizable human tissues and body parts except teeth which are removed during surgery, obstetrical procedures, autopsy, and laboratory procedures.

(b) Biological waste, which means blood and blood products, exudates secretions, suctionings, and other body fluids which contains free liquids and cannot be or are not directly discarded into a municipal sewer system.

(c) Cultures and stocks of infectious agents and associated biologicals including cultures from medical and pathological laboratories, cultures and stocks of infectious agents from research and industrial laboratories, wastes from the production of biologicals, discarded live and attenuated vaccines, and culture dishes and devices used to transfer, inoculate, and mix cultures.

(d) Contaminated animal carcasses, body parts, their bedding, and other wastes from such animals which are infected with or which have been exposed to infectious agents, capable of causing disease in man.

(e) Sharps, which means any discarded article that may cause punctures or cuts. Such waste includes, but is not limited to, items such as needles, IV tubing and syringes with needles attached, and scalpel blades.

(f) Chemotherapy waste, which means any disposable material which has come in contact with cytotoxic/antineoplastic agents (agents toxic to cells) and/or antineoplastic agents (agents that inhibit or prevent the growth and spread of tumors or malignant cells) during the preparation, handling, and administration of such agents. Such waste includes, but is not limited to, masks, gloves, gowns, empty IV tubing bags and vials, and other contaminated materials. The above waste must first be classified as empty which means such quantity that it is not subject to other federal or state waste management regulations prior to being handled as biomedical waste.

(g) Discarded medical equipment and parts, excluding expendable supplies and materials included in paragraphs (a) through (f) of this Rule, which have not been decontaminated, and that were in contact with infectious agents.”

If your facility only produces “sharps”, you can rest assured that’s the majority of medical waste for facilities (~80% of our Atlanta clients also only produce “sharps” as their medical waste.)

Facilities of Regulated Medical Waste

medical-waste-removal

The Georgia Administrative Code (Rule 391-3-4-.15), outlines comprehensive regulations concerning the management of regulated medical waste in healthcare facilities, which include a variety of establishments such as hospitals, clinics, laboratories, and dental offices. These regulations ensure the safe handling, storage, transportation, and disposal of medical waste, thereby safeguarding public health and the environment.

Key aspects of these regulations include:

  1. The code categorizes biomedical waste as any solid waste containing pathological waste, biological wastes, cultures, and stocks of infectious agents, chemotherapy waste, and discarded medical equipment and parts. It’s important to distinguish between regulated and non-regulated medical waste, with regulated medical waste often referred to as biomedical waste in Georgia.
  2. Facilities must store medical waste in a manner that prevents access by patients or the general public, labels it correctly to avoid accidental disposal, and stores it in a cool, dry place to prevent degradation and avoid attracting pests. Sharps must be stored in compliant containers that prevent leakage and tearing.
  3. Proper packaging is essential for the transportation of medical waste. Containers must be leak-proof, rigid, and labeled correctly. For example, chemotherapy and pathological waste must be labeled for incineration, while all biological wastes should bear the general biohazard symbol. Sharps containers must be puncture-resistant to ensure the safety of all handlers.
  4. Both state and federal regulations must be adhered to. Facilities must be aware of their waste generator status, as this impacts the volume of waste they can store and the duration it can be stored before disposal. Non-compliance with these regulations can result in significant fines.
  5. Medical waste management companies must have the appropriate permits and insurance to handle and transport medical waste. The waste generator retains responsibility for the waste until it is properly treated and disposed of, emphasizing the importance of working with reputable waste management companies.

What is the method of disposal for medical waste?

Medical waste disposal typically involves segregation, treatment, and final disposal. The waste is first categorized based on type and risk, then treated to reduce its hazard (often through methods like autoclaving or incineration), and finally disposed of in accordance with regulatory guidelines to ensure environmental safety.

How do you dispose of sharps containers in Atlanta?

Disposal of sharps containers in Atlanta involves placing used sharps in FDA-approved containers, which are then handed over to licensed medical waste disposal services. These services ensure the safe and compliant destruction of the sharps, usually through incineration or other approved methods, adhering to local and federal regulations.

What are the methods of waste disposal?

Methods of waste disposal include incineration, autoclaving, chemical treatment, and landfilling. Incineration burns waste to reduce its volume, autoclaving uses steam to sterilize, chemical treatment neutralizes hazardous components, and landfilling involves burying waste in designated areas following treatment to minimize environmental impact.

What are the steps in biomedical waste management?

Biomedical waste management steps include segregation (separating waste at the point of generation), collection and storage (using appropriate containers and conditions), transportation (using licensed carriers), treatment (like autoclaving or chemical disinfection to neutralize hazards), and final disposal (in compliance with legal and environmental standards).

1 Fun and 1 Interesting Fact About Atlanta!

treecanopyatl_getty
atlanta

Atlanta, known as the “City in a Forest,” stands out for its lush tree coverage, making it one of the most densely forested urban areas in the US. This natural abundance offers a unique blend of city life and greenery. Additionally, Atlanta holds a significant historical distinction: it was the only North American city destroyed as an act of war when General Sherman burned it during the Civil War. This event, immortalized in “Gone with the Wind,” marks Atlanta’s resilience and its remarkable ability to reinvent itself from the ashes of its past.
