A Los Angeles hospital has agreed through plea bargaining to a $73,000 fine after allegations of unlawful disposal of medical (clinical) waste from one of its medical centers.
Kaiser Foundation Hospitals South Bay Medical Center delivered a roll-off trash bin containing medical waste, including tubing filled with blood, contaminated surgical devices, and surgical drapes, soaked with blood to the Carson Waste Management transfer station in 2010. Kaiser was also found to be unlawfully storing medical waste, as it was not properly marked as a biohazard.
