Improper medical waste disposal poses a danger to human health and the environment, and can accrue heavy fines and legal penalties. Busy medical facilities trust that their medical waste is disposed of properly, but occasional mistakes or negligence can be costly and time-consuming.
Earlier this winter, crews at the Tennessee Department of Transportation reported finding medical waste by an interstate highway, according to local news station WKNR. Among the items found were prescription bottles, a bag for intravenous fluids, medical tubing, and discarded gloves. Special clean-up crews had to be called in to handle the waste as government agencies continued to investigate the mysterious dumping.
