Individualized Rapid Assessment Tool (I-RAT).
The I-RAT is a rapid assessment tool to obtain an initial indication of the level of healthcare waste management at an individual healthcare facility. The tool results in an overall score that can be used by Ministries of Health to compare and rank healthcare facilities for the purpose of prioritizing interventions. The tool can also be used as a quick tool to identify possible areas for improvement. The I-RAT is not intended to provide a detailed or comprehensive assessment. The I-RAT was designed for use by technical consultants and/or hospital personnel specializing in healthcare waste management.
