If Ebola ever makes it to the U.S. unannounced, very few hospitals, if any, have the right tools in place to properly handle it. This isn’t necessarily because they don’t have enough beds or protective equipment, but rather because they don’t have a suitable or legal way to properly dispose of the resultant medical waste.
Emory University Hospital in Atlanta recently ran into this problem after treating two U.S. missionaries who contracted Ebola while working in West Africa. The hospital began accumulating as many as 40 bags of medical waste per day that it kept in a special containment area until the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gave further instruction as to how to handle it.
