This is in reference to the editorial “Hospital wastes” (THT, Feb. 1, Page 8). It is rather shocking to learn how different hospitals in the capital are indulging in immoral and irresponsible act of dumping hospital waste in an erratic manner. Only increasing the number of health institutions does not guarantee effective health service delivery unless they abide by the rules and laws set by the government, without compromising on quality.


Why are hospitals not serious enough to segregate their wastes that are extremely hazardous and pose health risks to the community at large? Similarly, why are our concerned authorities so blindfolded and apathetic to the entire situation. It seems apparent that the so-called “regulation” is virtually non-existent. However, it is high time that the government become receptive and enforce the law on “waste disposal” strictly to safeguard the well-being of the community and to reduce the overall burden of communicable disease that the country is already battling with at the moment.
