Is there some special procedure I should follow for disposing of biohazardous materials if I get a cut or bloody nose? Should I wrap it up? Flush it? Just pitch it in the trash like everything else?I'm just a normal person. I don't work in a lab or in medicine and I have no major communicable illnesses that I know of.
No special disposal procedures are required unless you have reason to believe that you have a communicable blood-borne disease. If you have such a disease, consult with your doctor about effective measures for disposing of medical waste and refuse.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals.
