Medical waste bin refers to the containers containing direct or indirect infectious, toxic, and other hazardous waste generated by medical and health institutions during medical treatment, prevention, health care, and other related activities. In the clinical laboratory department, patients’ blood, body fluids and secretions are mainly used, and there are a small amount of recyclable items.
Medical waste is a special type of hazardous waste, and the problem of medical waste disposal has become a hot spot worldwide. The medical waste generated in the hospital should not be mixed with domestic waste. It should be placed in a medical waste bin or medical waste bag and sent to a designated place for professional treatment.
