Abstract

The objective of the research is to determine the incidence of healthcare waste management in the control of nosocomial infections associated with care. Its research study with quantitative approach, basic non-experimental type, with a cross-sectional causal correlational design. The population of 350 workers, with a sample of 250 workers who participated in data collection, two instruments were applied, the first was a questionnaire with 34 items and the second a questionnaire with 31 items, both questionnaires validated by expert judgment and assessed by Cronbach's Alpha reliability test, with the results for healthcare waste management α = 0.894 and for nosocomial infection control reliability was α = 0.871. For inferential analysis, ordinal linear regression statistics and the Nagelkerke coefficient were used. The results obtained from the evaluation of healthcare waste management in a San Juan de Lurigancho hospital revealed a considerably high incidence, with a worrying 48% classified as inadequate. This finding indicates a significant deficiency in waste management practices in the hospital that affects nosocomial infection control, reaching 45%, suggesting a direct incidence. The conclusion is that sanitary waste management is inadequate and has a negative influence of 75.3% on infection control.
