Medical Wastes and Their Dangers
Medical wastes are considered one of the important issues which occupy the interest of healthful, environmental and service managements. With the big expansion in healthful services and great progress in modern technologies, medical wastes coming from hospitals and medical centers have attracted the attention for how to treat them and how to avoid their side effects.
Attention should be paid to the fact that healthy dangers of medical wastes are not only limited to medical staff including doctors, nurses and service workers, but also extended to all members of society exposed to the wastes and their effects. That is why hazards of medical wastes extend beyond hospitals especially with the existence of home health care, vaccination campaigns and out-of-hospital health care
