How do you dispose of bloody tissues from a nosebleed? In the hospital and I have always disposed of them in the plastic lined trash bin.
Of course, the teachers are freaking out. I have shared the following with them, but that doesn't seem to appease them.
**Remember that under OSHA, you can generally dispose of “contaminated” waste (Items that are simply contaminated with small absorbed amounts of blood or OPIM) in regular plastic lined trash containers.
Any other thoughts on how to help them understand that every person does not have Biohazard bags at home for their soiled bandages, pads, tampons and tissues, therefore, we don't have them at school?
