Abstract: 

Non-Normative hospital waste management is considered a serious threat to the health of patients, workers, people, and the environment. In this regard, the present study was performed to evaluate the management of hospital waste in one of the highly specialized hospitals of Tehran in 2010. To collect the necessary information, a questionnaire from the Ministry of Health was used. All items were directly completed through interview with relevant persons in the management of hospital waste. In total, the average amount of solid waste generated in hospital was 1750 kg/ day. The daily percentages of normal, infectious, and sharp winner solid wastes based on each hospital active bed were 54.13%, 43.46%, and 2.41%, respectively. These results showed that there was no appropriate waste management in the hospital and thus, appropriate actions to isolate infectious waste must be implemented.
