Long Term Care Facilities & Nursing Facilities

Although nursing homes and assisted living centers are rarely associated with environmental issues, they are regulated by federal and state regulations that include waste disposal.

In regards to medical waste, some of the laws and regulations that apply to this sector include the management and disposal of unused pharmaceuticals and medical waste.

Some of this waste is created from the medical care given to the elderly residents, but biohazardous waste can come from different sources in the nursing home as well. Regulated medical waste, is any waste that may be contaminated by blood, body fluids, or other potentially infectious materials.

There are already many federal organizations that a nursing home must be in compliance with such as OSHA and the EPA, and there may be rules placed by overseeing state authority as well. One of the areas of regulation that a nursing facility must be compliant in is in the storage, treatment, management, and disposal of these hazardous and medical wastes.
