Abstract

Among different sources of medical wastes, hospitals are one of the main and biggest sources. Hospital wastes including pathological, radioactive, pharmaceutical, chemical and infectious materials and medical equipment are known for their many hazardous, poisonous and pathogenic factors. The descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out in Qods Hospital-Paveh City in 2015. The wastes were categorized in four categories of household, infectious, sharp objects and chemical/pharmaceutical. Based on the number of active beds in hospital waste volume per day/bed was computed. The data analyses were performed in EXCEL.On average waste production level in Qods Hospital of Paveh City was 102 kg/day. Nominal bed number of the hospital is 70 and 64 beds were active on average every day. Waste production rate per active beds in the hospital was comparatively less than Tehran-based (2.71 kg/day.bed) and Zanjan-based (2.402 kg/day.bed) hospitals. © Medwell Journals, 2016.
