hospital waste

last week, i conducted a hospital waste management workshop with the hospital waste management team (hwmt) of the lucena united doctors hospital & medical center (ludhmc). my colleague mr. art baysa of zectra enterprise (a wastewater treatment facility-wtf contractor) delivered a lecture on the operation & maintenance of the newly constructed wastewater treatment plant of ludhmc after w/c a hospital waste mgt workshop followed. this is one of a series of workshops that will tackle the hospital’s waste mgt, e.g. liquid waste (wastewater), solid waste (domestic), infectious waste, hazardous waste, etc.

we are currently finalizing the hospital waste mgt program together w/ the hwmt. a very timely issue is the wastewater generation minimization program, a mitigating measure that can ensure continuous improvement. after the installation of an engineering control (i.e. the wtf), an administrative control like this minimization program will see to it that the activity will be sustainable. the hospital already spent a lot of money in the construction of the wtf and will spend more money in operating it to be sure that they are not polluting the nearby water bodies. there is no return of investment in this intervention, but the minimization program can reduce the cost of operating the facility.

    The waste management program must not only be replicated by other healthcare industry players but also other industries like manufacturing, food & beverages, among others.

    Good job Sir Eric. You’ve done a great job there and I’m sure they (healthcare practitioners) have learned a lot from your expertise.
