Abstract:

Biomedical waste has been one of the major headaches of any hospital. Eighty percent waste generated from the hospitals is general waste and the remaining twenty percent comes under the biomedical waste categories. If this waste is not properly managed, it is dangerous for people, animals and environment due to its high harmful potential. In the present investigation, aerobic bacteria like Escherichia coli (32%), Staphylococcus aureus (28%), and Bacillus spp. (10%) were isolated from the biomedical waste. These bacterial strains were morphologically identified and confirmed by using primary and secondary biochemical tests. Clearly there is a need of awareness to the hazards associated with improper biomedical waste disposal. Lack of apathy to the concept of waste management is a major stymie to the practice of waste disposal.
