Contamination Control in Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities

Most healthcare facilities and the laboratories associated with them have constantly changing work environments involving multiple physical, chemical, and biological agents. Due to the nature of the work, there are potentially serious risks of exposure to various types of contamination.

Contaminants may be present in the form of gases, liquids, solids, particulates, or combination states, such as dusts (solids in gas) or mists (liquids in gas). Chemical exposure may involve pure chemicals, mixtures, solutions, or airborne contaminants. Contamination in a healthcare facility may involve hazardous materials that are:

  • Toxic
  • Corrosive
  • Infectious
  • Radioactive
  • Flammable
  • Explosive
  • Volatile

Contamination with blood, biological materials, and organisms can result in illness, infection, or death. Control of contamination reduces the transmission of disease-carrying organisms to patients and medical staff. For these reasons, it is crucial to impose rigorous biosafety procedures, techniques, and controls in a healthcare workplace.

Hazardous Waste in Hospitals

According to the Healthcare Environmental Resource Center, the most common hazardous waste problems in hospitals include:

  • Lack of or improper hazardous waste disposal
  • Improper management of mercury-containing waste, including thermometers, mercury vapor lights, gastric tubes, and fluorescent light bulbs
  • Improper disposal of chemotherapy drugs
  • Improper or lack of hazardous waste labeling
  • Open containers of hazardous waste
  • Improper management of expired pharmaceuticals
  • Hazardous wastes disposed down drain system

Infectious Waste Removal

Medical waste is a breeding ground for disease-carrying organisms. The definition of infectious medical waste under federal law includes any potentially infectious materials. This may include liquids, semi-liquids, dry materials, and microbiological and pathological waste.

Infectious medical waste can be dangerous and carries a high level of potential risk. Healthcare providers are responsible for the waste generated in their facilities, even after it has left the facility, until it is destroyed. Therefore, it is important to work with professionals who will ensure that medical waste and contaminants are properly handled.
