dc.descriptionFraiwan, L., Lweesy, K., Oweis, R., Al Qablan, H., & Hasanat, M. (2013). Medical waste management practices in southern Jordan.
dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this work was to study medical waste practices in southern Jordan. Five major hospitals in that area were used to conduct this study. It involved distributing a modified version of the questionnaire that was adopted by the World Health Organization (WHO). The surveyed hospitals had total number of beds ranging from 72 to 131 beds, while the average amount of medical waste generated in these hospitals was 0.73 kg bed−1 day–1. The practices of medical waste management were found to be suffering from major defects owing to the lack of both training and proper education.en_US
