Kentucky’s Largest City is served by MedPro Medical Waste Disposal Louisville, KY.
Louisville is home to the University of Louisville Hospital, one of the highest-rated medical school hospitals in the nation. Humana, one of the largest health insurance companies is located in Louisville, as are several heart and cancer treatment centers. The healthcare industry is thriving in Kentucky as the state attracts more research scientists and corporate partners to join the doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals who work together to improve an already world-class system.
Healthcare in Louisville depends on everyone working together as a unit to share information and resources. Patients and healthcare workers benefit when there is a commitment made to safety and efficiency, two essential components of any successful endeavor.
Hospitals, clinics, blood banks, and laboratories all have one common by-product: medical waste. Also known as biomedical waste and biohazardous waste, these materials have the potential to be very dangerous, even deadly if not handled properly.
In Kentucky the Division of Waste Management under the Department of Environmental Protection regulates the collection, transportation, and disposal of medical waste, and details can be found at their website.
Medical Waste Disposal Louisville, KY
Medical waste in simple terms is any waste that may be contaminated by blood, bodily fluids, or potentially infectious materials. Although the EPA does provide some oversight of medical waste storage and disposal, the majority of medical waste is regulated on a state or local level. In Kentucky, there are no specific regulations pertaining to medical waste and there is no one agency with jurisdiction over medical waste. There are, however, regulations that reference the characterization, treatment, handling, labeling and storage, transport and disposal of this type of waste. These state regulations overlap between environmental, public health, labor and transportation agencies. They are intended to protect personnel, the public and the environment from exposure, injury or contamination of potentially infectious wastes.
