Absorbents, Infectious Waste

Definition : Materials capable of attracting or incorporating (i.e., absorbing) a liquid/semiliquid substance and designed to be used to immobilize/solidify liquid/semiliquid infectious waste (e.g., blood, urine, mucus, vomit) so that it can be handled properly (i.e., for removal, storage, decontamination, and disposal). Infectious waste absorbents are typically used when liquid/semiliquid infectious waste has been spilled or has leaked from a container; these absorbents often are available as a component of a spill cleanup kit. Infectious waste absorbents are also used to solidify liquid infectious waste in various containers (e.g., suction canisters, infectious waste trash bags [i.e., red bags], urology bags).
