Frequently Asked Questions

How is Pathological waste treated?

While regulated medical waste can be treated by autoclave to achieve sterilization, depending on state regulations most pathological waste must be processed through incineration. Incineration is a much hotter treatment that reduces the contents to dust or ash. Daniels Health subscribes to the state regulations that govern the jurisdiction in which we operate, where mandated we will incinerate, but in states where this treatment is not enforced, we utilize autoclave or microwave technology on our medical waste and sharps disposal containers.
