My teeming garbage can after doing eight straight back-to-back cases at one of our outpatient surgical centers today. I know basically everything in the hospital is one use only and sterilely packaged these days, but this was my giant, industrial-sized garbage can after just one day in the OR. What happens to all this garbage anyway?
(This is the part where someone smart in the comments section answers that question, and then I get super depressed. An inconvenient truth indeed.)
