Pharmaceutical residues in hospital wastewater explores how hospital wastewater contributes to the pharmaceutical load released into the environment.

The report features five case studies illustrating how European hospitals, from Belgium, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, are dealing with pharmaceutical residues in their wastewater. It also looks at resistant bacteria because of their potential link with antibiotic residues in hospital effluents.
