When I worked in the hospital records section one of the wards sent us a patient chart in a red "contaminated" bag. The ward wasn't supposed to do that; they were supposed to copy the record and send us the copy while properly disposing of the contaminated chart, as we didn't have facilities for handling or storing contaminated charts. My boss raised a fuss, and someone from that ward eventually copied the chart. They also had to disinfect the copier.
