Garbage collector ingests medical waste

A garbage collector of Brisbane is suing Haematology and Oncology Clinics of Australasia after swallowing a portion of medical waste from an improperly secured bin, the Courier Mail reported.

It is alleged that up to two litres of medical waste were spilt including blood, human biopsies and chemotherapy chemicals –  a part of which was ingested by the Brisbane man.

He alleges that the Haematology and Oncology Clinics of Australasia didn’t make certain that the staff at the Auchenflower clinic secured the waste properly. The matter will be heard at a later date.
