Not bad!

15 people responded to the quiz and 11 of the respondents had a similar understanding of regulated waste as my own.

Essentially most items belong in regular trash. The only exceptions are gauze or gowns that drip with blood, body tissue, and sharps. While this may vary by state and locale, the results of my quiz suggest there are some national standards.

Of course with an n of 15, my study lacks any power and we must accept the results with caution.

I will place the pole on the side bar and see if we can get some more responses.

Thanks for the help.
