I sent your request out to the Heathcare without Harm list serve. Below is
a response I received from a consultant with Litenin Env. Response.
Hope this helps somewhat.
Mpls, MN USA
Our average waste is about the same numbers that you sent. The high
average per bed is about 7.5 lbs/day/bed for biohazardous. Once we've
implemented our program, we can ususally get them down to around 2.5 to 4
(depending on the hospital's interpretation of the definition of
"biohazardous waste"). The make-up or composition of the general waste
you provided seems about right.
Hope this is helpful!
