As the So Paulo Association of Control of Hospital Infection (apud FORMAGGIA, 1995) carried through studies point that the determinative causes of the hospital infection in users of the medical services are: which had 50% to the disequilibrium of the bacterial flora of the body of the weak patient already for the illness and estresse for it decurrent of the environment where it is interned; which had 30% to the unpreparedness of the professionals who give medical assistance; which had 10% to inadequate the physical installations that propitiate the linking between septic and not septic considered areas, making possible the ambient contamination; 10% which had to the bad management of residues and others. c) half-environment In the measure where the RSSS, treated inadequately, are made use in any way in deposits the open sky or courses d? waters, make possible the contamination of drinking waters sources, they are superficial or underground, and the dissemination of illnesses by means of vectors that if multiply in these places or that they make of the residues its source of feeding. Thus, we approximately have a daily flow of at least 2.000 people in hospital producing 600 kg/dia of total residues and with a forecast of cost/day for the SEMUS (City department of Health) in R$ the 482,40 to the day prices of 2007 (R$ 2,68 for collected kg) of infectantes, perforate-cutting and chemical residues collected and carried daily for the Serquip company from treatment of residues LTDA. The plans of management of residues of the services of health in its continuity must observe the annual evolution of these pointers in order better to manage the increase of the segregation of the residues and to minimize and to reduce the impact of the tripod formed for the health occupational-tax of hospital infection environment..
