"It was a wonderful experience interacting with you and appreciate the way you have planned and executed the whole publication process within the agreed timelines.”Subrat SaurabhAuthor of Kuch Woh Pal
Healthcare or hospital waste poses adverse effects on human health and the environment. Its proper disposal is vital for individual and community health. Healthcare waste contains many strains of bacteria and virus, and is potentially hazardous. Its proper collection, treatment and disposal is important to prevent spread of infection. Unfortunately, it remains a neglected area. There are many reasons, but the most important is lack of applied knowledge, and deficient implementation.
Laljee Verma was commissioned to write a book on healthcare waste management by the department of Science and Technology, Government of India, and a book entitled ‘Managing Healthcare Waste-A Practical Approach’ was published in 2007. Sensing that many healthcare workers may not be proficient in English, this Hindi version of the book is being brought out. The book explains environmental degradation that can happen due to deficient healthcare waste management. It sites deficiencies, success stories and case studies in India, and South East Asia Region countries.
Doctors, nurses, paramedics, and waste handlers are the stakeholders in overall management of healthcare waste. Therefore, it is important that apart from doctors, nurses, paramedics, and waste handlers appreciate the implication of deficient healthcare waste management.
Laljee Verma is widely known in the academic circle not only in India but in most parts of the world for the pioneering work he has done in the subject of Healthcare (hospital) Waste Management, a vital area for health safety but poorly implemented. He founded the Indian Society of Hospital Waste Management (ISHWM) and was its founding President. Laljee holds a PG degree in Environmental Science, and Ph D in hospital waste management conferred by the Inter-Cultural Open University, the Netherlands. He has published more than a dozen scientific papers and articles in Indian and international journals, and undertaken many research projects. He was granted a writing project by the department of Science and Technology, and published a book in English – ‘Healthcare Waste Management-A Practical Approach’ in 2007. Considering the relevance of the subject for healthcare workers not comfortable with English he has now decided to publish its Hindi version.
Laljee is a medical graduate and served with the Armed Forces for about 4 decades retiring from the post of Director General, Medical Services of the Air Force in the rank of Air Marshal.
Laljee lives in Delhi and can be contacted through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
