Re: Specimen containers

From:Vicki Gauch <>

 We dispose of all specimens and containers to be discarded by placing them in  double red bags and then the bags are put in a hard fiber box, labeled appropriately and sent for incineration elsewhere.  Hope this helps.

Have a great day,

Hello all

How do you all dispose of specimen containers that have patient
identification on them?  Not the specimen, just the container.
Incineration, landfill, something else?  With the high level of concern for
patient confidentiality, I want to make sure that we are using the best
available option.  Thanks in advance!
