Research at IIT Delhi could help hospitals select medical waste disposal companies

A group of researchers at IIT Delhi has come up with a way to help hospitals choose a good medical waste disposal company for the environment. The study looks at how much human resources are needed, how many cases have been filed in court, the cost, the reputation of existing clients, technology, collection instruments, staff training, recycling, and risk.

Key Highlight:

  • This framework was developed by scholars at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi.
  • The study focused on hospitals in a north Indian city, led by Surya Prakash Singh, professor of management studies.
  • According to IIT Delhi, the study is significant because the amount of hazardous medical wastes, such as syringes, masks, bandages, blooded cotton, and chemicals, is increasing.
  • “The study provides hospitals with a robust decision-making framework,” the release said.
  • “The goal of this study is to propose a hybrid multi-criteria decision support system with a mathematical model to address safe healthcare waste disposal.”

A group of researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi has come up with a way to help hospitals choose a good medical waste disposal company for the environment and the people who use it. An Indian professor in the department of management studies led the group of researchers. They looked at hospitals in a north Indian city to start.

According to a statement from IIT Delhi, the study is important in light of the current Covid situation because the number of hazardous medical wastes, such as syringes, masks, bandages, blooded cotton, and chemicals is rising.

“The study gives hospitals a strong way to choose the right medical waste disposal company,” said the statement.

In the Journal of Environmental Management, the research paper was read by people. It looks at things like how many people work, how much money it costs, how long it has been in business, how good existing clients are, how much technology there is, how much training and awareness there is, how much waste there is to recycle, and how much risk there is.

I want to come up with a way to help people make decisions about how to dispose of hazardous and infectious waste from hospitals and other health care facilities in a safe way.” People who run hospitals should look for economically, socially, and environmentally responsible businesses when they need to get rid of medical trash, says Singh, who led the study. Further, he said that the framework would help hospitals avoid fights with environmental regulators and stakeholders because it will help them work together.
