Preventing infection in care: safe management of waste

Care homes for older people produce many different types of waste some of which requires special handling and disposal. This would include waste such as sharps, used continence products, wound dressings from individuals and waste generated from people who have or may have an infection, particularly during an outbreak of diarrhoea and vomiting.

This video resource documents the safe disposal of all waste by those involved in the handling, transporting and processing of it.
