Abstract
The present study aims to provide information about the management segregation, storage and of medical waste in our tertiary care centre, Bikaner. A cross sectional study was employed and simple random sampling technique was used to distribute a semi structured questionnaire among 100 medical& paramedical staff at this tertiary care hospital. The results disclosed that this health care facility still suffers from inappropriate biomedical waste management. According to 30 % respondent segregation is not done by the medical & paramedical staff and around 60% of staff don't know where medical storage place is and don't know there is mark to show place of storage. Besides 20% of respondent don't know if there is any mean for transferring medical waste & 30% don't know its type or whether it is available always or not. In the survey it has been highlighted that there is no provision of HCW management training courses in the hospital. Therefore the health care institution should give more consideration towards policies for proper management & disposal of medical waste in order to develop medical waste management practices in hospital.
