Do outpatient surgery centers have the same regulations as an operating room in a hospital?

While an outpatient or ambulatory surgical center doesn’t generate the same volume of waste as a hospital, a surgical center often generates much the same types of medical waste as a hospital. For example:

  • Pathological waste
  • Chemo waste
  • Biohazard waste
  • Infectious waste
  • Surgical waste
  • Microbiological waste

Additionally, surgical centers also produce Sharps waste and are required to follow the same sharps container regulations and medical waste removal standards as any other medical facility.

Does your facility have proper training regarding pharmaceutical waste disposal?

Because surgery centers use anesthesia for surgery, they often have a wide range of pharmaceutical waste to dispose of properly. Often controlled substance waste is generated, and some chemotherapy waste may be involved, depending on the procedures offered at your facility. Knowing how to dispose of expired medication requires proper identification because some of those drugs are considered hazardous waste.
