MedPro Medical Waste Disposal Macon, Georgia
Macon’s healthcare system is driven by dedicated doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals who work to improve an already excellent standard of care. Navicent Health Hospital and Coliseum Northside Hospital serve the community.
Medical waste is a by-product of almost every hospital, clinic, and medical practice office in Georgia and when it is produced it must be handled, transported, and disposed of according to the Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia and the applicable rule is 391-3-4-.15.
Medical waste is also called biomedical waste and biohazardous waste – it includes needles, bandages, tubing, and any other item which has come into contact with bodily fluids or tissue. Due to the possibility of infectious disease being associated with medical waste, it must be handled only by trained personnel who work for licensed and insured companies.
MedPro Compliance: In every area served by MedPro there are different regulations and restrictions which must be followed without compromise. Compliance with safety rules is non-negotiable and MedPro has earned a sterling reputation for regulatory compliance.
Training: MedPro knows that the healthcare team as a whole must work together toward a goal of zero-accidents, and so our website serves as a platform for education, training, and certification in all areas related to medical waste safety. The MedPro Online Safety Compliance Portal includes access to thousands of safety regulations, training on OSHA, HazCom, and HIPPA rules, tools for building customized safety plans, and more.
The medical community is undergoing very significant changes regarding the coding and classification of diseases and treatments, so MedPro has included an ICD9 to ICD10 translator to help our customers remain compliant with the rules.
Costs: MedPro works hard to keep costs low. Doctors have told us their budgets are stretched to the limit and so we have made adjustments to our operations to reduce costs and increase efficiency.
MedPro serves medical communities in 44 states, and that permits us to consolidate certain transportation and collection operations to cut labor and fuel costs. MedPro passes those savings on to our customers because long-term relationships are our goal.
Added Value: MedPro believes in added-value benefits for our customers. For example, we will often ask our drivers to offer printed material and safety posters for display in offices and exam rooms. Every little bit helps, and you can never have too many reminders that safety comes first. And second, and third.
Extra Programs: We are also pleased to respond to doctors when they ask us for additional programs like an expired drug disposal program. Patients should always be discouraged from dumping old medications down the drain or in the regular trash. This can be hazardous to people and to the environment.
Customer Service: Everyone has called a customer service line only to stay on hold, push buttons, talk to a robot, and receive no service. MedPro has declared that to be unacceptable, and we have created a position called the Dedicated Customer Advocate. On day one customers are called by their advocate, and from that moment on there is a human contact in our company to reach out to for help. Prompt response to inquiries and issues is assured.
Macon is a wonderful place to live and work and MedPro is proud to be on board with the dedicated healthcare community.
