The main aim of the study was to investigation the medical waste management practices located in the north part hospitals in Malaysia. The northern part includes (Penang, Kedah, Perlis and Perak States) and most of the hospitals within these states either public or private hospitals were targeted. A questionnaire survey was mainly used for gathering information concerning different medical waste management aspects by identifying training services, segregation and containers, storage, collection, transportation as well as ward attendants.By and large, the way medical waste is treated in the north part of Malaysia is good: our findings have shown serious responsibilities from the respondents towards segregation, collection, storage, transportation, training programs and the safety of ward attendants, although some improvements are needed to meet WHO's recommended standards.
