What is Surgical Waste?

Surgical waste is known as pathological waste that is removed from a patient during surgery. Such waste is then required to be disposed of in a pathological waste container at the conclusion of the procedure. Instruments used during surgeries which can include needles, scalpels, syringes and lancets should be disposed of in a sharps container, and any non biological materials contaminated with blood or bodily fluids should be segregated into an approved regulated medical waste container.
