Some of the detected problems are: it lacks of team of personal protection, the appropriate recipients are not used, storage of waste inside the hospital, the vehicles used in the internal transport are not appropriate, bad organization of the storing center, among others.

Esta situacion representa un grave peligro para la salud de la poblacion y el medio ambiente pues se le expone a agentes infecciosos sustancias toxicas e incluso productos radiactivos que se generan en los residuos de los centros de salud. En este trabajo se proponen mejoras al sistema de manejo de desechos solidos del hospital Calderon Guardia, y se evaluo cada uno de los puntos mencinados anteriormente. Se hizo una revision acerca de las propiedades, la calidad y la cantidad de los desechos solidos producidos y un diagnostico de la situacion actual en este centro de salud. Las mejoras propuestas se basan en el prograna regional de desechos solidos hospitalarios, convenio ALA 91/33 (este fue elaborado en 1997 por una iniciativa de cooperacion entre la Union Europea y los Gobiernos de Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua y Panama) y las Normas para el Manejo de Desechos Solidos Peligrosos en Establecimientos de Salud (elaborado por la Caja Costarricense del Seguro Social). Ademas se exponen sus ventajas y desventajas y se realiza un analisis comparativo entre el plan de manejo propuesto en estos documentos y el que se utiliza actualmente en el hospital Calderon Guardia. Algunos de los problemas detectados son: falta de equipo de proteccion personal, no se utilizan los recipientes adecuados, almacenamiento de desechos dentro del hospital, los vehiculos utilizados en el transporte interno no son los mas adecuados, mala organizacion del centro de acopio, entre otros.
