Q. Explain Waste produced during surgical process?
Some of the waste products produced during a surgical process are dressings, sponges, gloves or other soft material dripping with blood or purulent discharge. These should be placed in a strong plastic bag or double-bagged, then disposed of into garbage containers, picked up by municipal garbage collectors and taken to the landfill. Blood and/or body fluids contained in absorbent materials are not known to pose a risk for disease transmission and, therefore, do not require incineration.
