Abstract

Aim: To evaluate the stages of management of the residues of health services (RSS, acronym in Portuguese) of Group D in a university hospital. Method: This is a field research, of the exploratory and descriptive type, of quantitative-qualitative approach. It uses a validated instrument, the Health-Care Waste Management - Rapid Assessment Tool Brazilian Version (HCWM-RAT Brazilian Version), for data collection in the field. The preparation of the data, statistical and analytical procedures, will be made possible through the software IBM SPSS©. Expected results: Contribute to the implementation and follow-up of the practices recommended by the National Sanitary Surveillance Agency and National Solid Waste Policy; broadening the understanding of the RSS management system; reducing waste management costs; and the reinforcement of the use of scientific evidence in environmental management in the health sector, since it informs and supports the managerial and political decision making.
