What is the definition of Pharmaceutical?

The definition of pharmaceutical is something related to prescription drugs or pharmacies.

What are pharmaceutical drugs used for?

A pharmaceutical drug is a drug used to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent disease. Drugs are classified in various ways. One of the key divisions is by level of control, which distinguishes prescription drugs from over-the-counter drugs. Another key distinction is between traditional small molecule drugs, usually derived from chemical synthesis, and bio pharmaceuticals, which include recombinant proteins, vaccines, blood products used therapeutically, gene therapy, and cell therapy. Other ways to classify medicines are by mode of action, route of administration, biological system affected, or therapeutic effects. An elaborate and widely used classification system is the Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System.

What is clinical waste and waste removal?

Definition:

Clinical waste consists of medical waste that could pose a threat to public health unless properly disposed of. It is a category of hazardous waste, and has to be collected under tightly controlled conditions and disposed of by incineration. It cannot be put with normal rubbish. The process is legally enforced by strict government regulations.

Clinical waste is defined in the Controlled Waste Regulations 1992. Any other waste arising from medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, pharmaceutical or similar practice, investigation, treatment, care, teaching or research, or the collection of blood for transfusion, being waste which may cause infection to any person coming into contact with it.

It refers to any waste that consists wholly or partly of:

  • Human or animal tissue, blood or bodily fluids,
  • Dressings or swabs,
  • Unwanted medicines and other pharmaceutical products,
  • Used syringes, needles and blades (‘contaminated sharps’),
  • Excretions.

How should clinical waste be removed?

Clinical waste should be placed in secure clinical waste bins, Domestic Waste Bins, Sanitary Bins, Nappy Bins and Recycling Bins. There are various companies that manufacture products to suit this industry and take the contents of the bin away to be incinerated.

How can we help you remove your clinical waste?

Masterflex manufacture a range of durable hard wearing hoses that can can be used in the incineration process. If you are in the incineration industry and have requirements for flexible hose and ductings, we will be happy to hear from you.

Top O’ the morning to you

StPatricksDayHappy

Today, March 17th, celebrates the life and work of the patron Saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick.

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church, and Lutheran Church.

The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilithe, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. Christians also attend church services and the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.

On St Patrick’s Day it is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories (the “wearing of the green”). St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. This story first appears in writing in 1726, though it may be older. In pagan Ireland, three was a significant number and the Irish had many triple deities, a fact that may have aided St Patrick in his evangelisation efforts.

Get in touch with Masterflex, and let us know how will you be celebrating?
