174Health Impact ofHealth Care Waste
175Treatment and Disposal Technologiesfor Health Care Waste Incineration – a high temperaturedry oxidation process that reducesorganic and combustible waste toinorganic, incombustible matter andresults in a very significant reductionof waste volume and weight. Thisprocess is chosen for wastes that cannot be recycled, reused or disposedof in a landfill site.
176Waste types not to beincinerated Pressurized gas containers Large amounts of reactive chemicalswastes Silver salts and photographic orradiographic wastes Halogenated plastics e.g. PVC Waste with high mercury or cadmiumcontent e.g. thermometers, used batteries Sealed ampoules containing heavy metals
177Characteristics of wastesuitable for incineration Low heating value Combustible matter – 60% Non-combustible solids – 5% Non-combustible fines – below 20% Moisture content – below 30%
179Treatment and Disposal Technologiesfor Health Care Waste Chemical Disinfection – chemicalsare added to waste to kill orinactivate the pathogens resulting todisinfection rather than sterilization.This process is suitable for treatingliquid waste such blood, urine, stoolsor hospital sewage. May alsodisinfect microbiological cultures,sharps etc.
180Treatment and Disposal Technologiesfor Health Care Waste Wet Thermal Treatmentbased on exposure of shredded infectiouswaste to high temperature, high pressuresteam and is similar to the autoclavesterilization process. It inactivates mosttypes of microorganisms. It is required forthe waste to be shredded beforetreatment, for sharps – milling orcrushing. It is not appropriate foranatomical waste and animal carcassesand will not sufficiently treat chemical andpharmaceutical wastes.
181Wet Thermal Treatment Disadvantages:- the shredder is liable to mechanicalfailure and breakdown- the efficiency of disinfection is verysensitive to the operationalconditions
182Treatment and Disposal Technologiesfor Health Care Waste Microwave Irradiationmost microorganisms are destroyedby action of microwaves of afrequency of 2450 MHz and awavelength of 12.24cm. Theinfectious agents are destroyed byheat conduction
183Hospital Hygiene andInfection Control Epidemiology of NosocomialInfections- transition from contamination toinfection- sources of infection- routes of transmission
184Hospital Hygiene andInfection Control Prevention of Nosocomial Infections- Principles:a. Separate the infection sourcefrom the rest of the hospitalb. Cut off any route of transmission
185Hospital Hygiene andInfection Control Prevention of Nosocomial Infections- Isolation of the infected patientsand standard precautions- Cleaning- Sterilization- Disinfection- Hand Hygiene

303CONTROL OF FLIES Musca Domestica - house fly Carriers of many diseases:dysentery, cholera, typhoid,diarrhea, conjunctivitis Fannia scaleris – latrine fly Breed in excreta, in fermentingand decaying garbage Carry the same diseases as thehouse fly
304Habits and Characteristics Housefly does not bite; stable fly is a vicious biter Housefly is about ¼ inch long, mouse gray or buff incolor Male is smaller than female The body, including the legs is covered with hairs The sticky hairs of the legs hold germs It dissolves sugar by depositing saliva on it. It rests on a quiet spot to clean head and proboscis,to digest and to vomit and suck up its half digestedfood.

309 Emerging from puparium, newborn adult fly crawls tentativelyuntil its wings have expanded fully and hardened. Flights: max- 500 to 1000 meters; min- 200 to 300 meters; whencarried by wind – up to 21 km Same size as when it emerges from pupa Lays eggs from 2- 20 days after emergence Eggs are deposited by female fly into a dung or other materialwhere heat generated by fermentation facilitates hatching andwhere moisture prevents drying Eggs are deposited within 8 hours of fresh manure only Length of life: 1 monthAdult fly<<<BACK>>>
310Breeding Places Human and Animal Excreta Garbage Rubbish dumps containing organicwastes Ground where liquid wastes are spilled
311Transmission of Disease Fly transmits disease through the legsand the digestive system It voids its digestive tract while feedingwhich contaminates food Produces 15-30 vomit spots and fecaldeposits in 24 hours
312Control Measures: Basis of control measures: habits andcharacteristics of housefly Preferred breeding material: horse manure Other breeding materials: animal manure, humanexcreta, fermenting vegetable wastes Larvae temperature susceptibility: 43 to 46 °C Mature larvae migrate from breeding material priorto pupation Pupa develop at or beyond the borders of mass ofbreeding material
313Control Measures: Larvae or adult insect crawl through loosemanure or earth Adult flies are attracted to food by odor Flies soar toward light Flies rest on vertical surface or hangingobject
314Methods of disposal of manure1. Disposal by contract2. Disposal of manure as fertilizer3. Disposal by drying4. Disposal by composting5. Disposal by incineration
315Disposal by contract Collection and transport contracted tosanitation group with the following rules: Manure to be collected early in the morning All manure should be completely carriedaway Vehicles should not allow spillage
316Disposal of manure as fertilizer Thinly spread on ground to dry quicklyor flowed under if manure is wet
317Disposal by drying Only in dry climates; if areas become wet, itturns into breeding places. Requirements: Grounds tamped and cleared of vegetation Manure is spread in layer not over 1 to 2 inchesthick Drying time: 4 to 7 days Area required: 1.1 sq m per animal
318Disposal by composting Manure is closely packed in a heap Heat generated in composting will killlarvae
319Disposal by incineration Manure may be staked in longwindrows, sprayed with oil and burned If manure is dried it can be burnedwithout oil
320Chemicals as larvicides If manure will not be used as fertilizer: Crude oil Waste oil Kerosene 2% solution of cresolNote: DDT is not effective against larvae
321Chemicals as larvicides If manure will be used as fertilizer Borax solution Hellebore Iron sulfate
322Chemicals as larvicides In dirty garbage can, privies or otherbreeding areas: Aldrin Dieldrin Organophosphate compounds
323Methods of control of adult flies Residual treatment Outdoor space sprays Fly trapping Fly paper and fly wire Swatting Screening Note: these are temporary measures andshould not be as substitute for excreta,garbage and waste control
324Residual treatment Chemicals are applied on surfaces(walls, leaves, etc) Housefly readily develops resistance toorganochloride or organophosphorus Less responsive to carbamate anpyrethrum type materials
325Outdoor space sprays Chemicals used for space treatmentsare more effetive than for residual/larvicidal applications Chemicals used: malathion, ronnel,fenthion, dichlorvos Resmethrin emulsion is highly effectivein reducing fly populations
326Fly trapping Two parts of fly traps Bait chamber – lowerdarker part of traps intowhich flies are enticed bythe odor of bait Trap chamber – upperand lighter part and isconnected with the baitchamber by an aperturethrough which the fliescrawl toward the lightafter having fed on thebait Location of fly traps Near breeding places:manure piles, latrines,garbage cans and dumps Near kitchens, aroundentrances to buildings,food preparing/ servingareas Baits – need not be asource of nuisance Fermented baits containalcohol Mixture of cereals,molasses yeast andwater
327Fly paper and fly wire Flies may be caught on wires or strips ofpaper coated with a sticky preparation Fly wire: Wire fence or wires made into pieces 450 – 900mm long and bent into a hooklet at one end;several wires may be twisted together Fly paper: Prepared by applying a thin coat of hot glue in apan to strips of paper 450- 900 mm long and 25 to50 mm wide
328Swatting An accessory measure by can givegood results if used especially beforemeal is served

440General Methods ofWater TreatmentRemoval of suspended solids and color which maybe accomplished:– By sedimentation – or permitting water toremain quiescent in large settling basin so thatthe suspended solids may settle to the bottom.– By coagulation - or applying to the water certainchemicals called coagulants that produce aninsoluble gelatinous and flocculent precipitatewhich absorbs and entraps the suspended solidsin the water and thus hastens their sedimentation– By filtration – or passing the water through alayer of sand or other material that retains thesuspended solids.
441General Methods ofWater TreatmentRemoval of bacteria which is accomplished by:– generally by the process mentioned for theremoval of suspended solids– supplemented by final disinfection with chlorineor other acceptable physical or chemical agentsto ensure the destruction of bacteria that maycause disease.
443General Methods ofWater TreatmentRemoval or neutralization of tastes, odors,objectionable minerals and dissolved gaseswhich is accomplished– By aeration, or exposing the water in thin filmsor droplets to the oxygen of the atmosphere– By treating the water with certain chemicals(eg., CuSO4 to control algae)– Using activated carbon.

451 Water Treatment TechSept2010Factors affecting theEffectiveness of Disinfection Duration of contact between the disinfectingagent and the pathogens Nature and concentration of microorganisms /pathogens Dosage or strength of disinfecting agent Characteristic or condition of water duringdisinfection
452 Water Treatment TechSept2010Conditions for EffectiveDisinfection Low suspended solids ( 1 mg/L) – suspendedsolids may prevent the action of disinfectingagents with the pathogens Low organic matter and other oxidizablesubstances – may react with disinfectantsthereby reducing the effect the disinfectingagents with the pathogens.
Chlorination Properties of Chlorine– Chlorine is a poisonous, corrosive, greenish-yellow gas that has a sharp, suffocating odorand is 2 ½ times heavier than air. It is veryirritating to the mucous lining of the lungs, andits inhalation in large quantities may be fatal. Commercial Preparation of chlorine– Liquid Chlorine– Chlorine Gas– High Test Hypochlorite (HTH), granular– Bleaching Agent, NaOCl <<<BACK>>>
457 Water Treatment TechSept2010Ozonation Ozone is a naturally occurring component of fresh air. The ultra-violet rays of the sun reacting with the Earthsupper atmosphere, which creates a protective ozone layer,can produce it; or it can be created artificially with an ozonegenerator. The ozone molecule contains three oxygen atoms whereasthe oxygen molecule contains only two. Ozone is a veryreactive and unstable gas with a short half-life before itreverts back to oxygen. Ozone is the most powerful and rapid acting oxidizerproduced, and will oxidize all bacteria, mold and yeastspores, organic material and viruses
459 Water Treatment TechSept2010Application of Ozone Ozone is a strong oxidizing agent that can be used asdisinfectant Color removal Taste and odor removal Turbidity reduction Organics removal Microflocculation Iron and manganese oxidation Bacterial disinfection and viral inactivation
