Correct disposal of healthcare waste in the medical aesthetic clinic setting

Correct disposal of healthcare waste in the medical aesthetic clinic setting For the purposes of this article, the author has focused only on infectious and medicinal healthcare waste pertinent to an aesthetic clinic or mobile aesthetic nurse. As it is presumed that cytotoxic or cytostatic medicines are not administered in these environments, these waste streams are not discussed. Not only does avoiding producing unnecessary waste reduce disposal costs, but implementing waste policies should also allow a critical review of the volume and types of waste produced in the clinical setting. It is important to identify and implement practical steps to reduce the volume of waste and consider the environment and carbon footprint. Effective segregation using the correctly-coloured waste receptacles can go a long way to ensuring adequate disposal. Audit policies are important to demonstrate compliance with regulations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

For the purposes of this article, the author has focused only on infectious and medicinal healthcare waste pertinent to an aesthetic clinic or mobile aesthetic nurse. As it is presumed that cytotoxic or cytostatic medicines are not administered in these environments, these waste streams are not discussed. Not only does avoiding producing unnecessary waste reduce disposal costs, but implementing waste policies should also allow a critical review of the volume and types of waste produced in the clinical setting. It is important to identify and implement practical steps to reduce the volume of waste and consider the environment and carbon footprint. Effective segregation using the correctly-coloured waste receptacles can go a long way to ensuring adequate disposal. Audit policies are important to demonstrate compliance with regulations.
