There’s no doubt that due to COVID-19, not only have we had to change certain habits individually, but also many health centers, laboratories, and workplaces are being forced, for the safety of their employees, to establish new protocols and safety measures regarding the treatment of infectious waste.
Many hospitals will have to adopt new measures in the treatment of infectious waste. One such hospital, Virgen de las Nieves in Granada, has had to implement actions along these lines, as reported by El Diario. This change is part of a broader trend in the healthcare sector, driven by the pandemic, which has highlighted the critical need for stringent waste management protocols. These new measures are likely to include enhanced protective equipment for staff, stricter disposal procedures, and advanced waste treatment technologies to ensure the safe and efficient handling of potentially hazardous materials.
