The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted nursing homes and other long-term care facilities due to high mortality rates among their residents, staffing shortages, and infection control issues. Proper segregation of pharmaceutical and regulated medical wastes within these settings is highly regulated but difficult to execute during a pandemic when staff is directing their attention elsewhere. Explore current recommendations and requirements for regulated waste management in the long-term care industry and how facilities can create consistent, simple, and compliant waste segregation methods.
