Abstract

Hospitals being the centre of cure are also an important centre of infectious waste generation. Present study deals with the study of the fate of the hospital waste at national and international level. An exhaustive survey and detailed investigation of the waste generated, recycled and their disposal procedures adopted in the leading hospitals in Terai belt of Uttar Pradesh in India have been reported through a “Self Assessment Audit Form” which consisted of 122 parameters divided in to 33 broad categories. It has been found that the amount of the infectious components in the waste is very little and this needs careful handling.
