Medical Waste Disposal Denver, CO
On the front lines of Denver’s excellent healthcare delivery system are thousands of doctors and nurses, and in supporting industries are pharmacists, technicians, medical supply companies, and medical waste companies.
Medical waste disposal Denver, Colorado, or bio-hazardous waste disposal may possibly be the number one medically-related industry that people really don’t like to talk about. Just mentioning contaminated needles sends some people running for the exit, but medical waste is common to every medical facility on earth and it has to be handled carefully. Recent stories in the news have highlighted how deadly diseases can be transmitted by accidental contact with an infected needle, so handling them is not for the untrained.
Hypodermic needles are actually quite interesting, and their invention is rated as one of the most important in history. Prior to the injection, the delivery of medications was mostly oral. In the 1850s the French veterinary surgeon Charles Gabriel Pravaz and the Scottish doctor Alexander Wood developed a syringe. It had a hollow needle fine enough to pierce the skin. Syringe barrels were initially made of metal, but by 1866 they were made from glass.
Biomedical waste may be solid or liquid. Examples of infectious waste include discarded blood, sharps, unwanted microbiological cultures and stocks, identifiable body parts, other human or animal tissue, used bandages and dressings, discarded gloves, other medical supplies that may have been in contact with blood and body fluids.
In the State of Colorado medical waste is regulated by the Department of Public Health & Environment, and the pertinent definitions, rules, and regulations can be found here.
MedPro Medical Waste Disposal Denver, Colorado has listened to doctors in Denver and across the country about their concerns related to medical waste. We have created the MedPro Advantage in response to their feedback:
All healthcare provider are nervous about increased costs. MedPro has responded with streamlined pick-ups and transportation routes to save money. We also attempt whenever possible to congregate pick-ups in the same geographic area to the same days, another savings. We pass these savings on to customers because we value their business and MedPro is in it for the long-term relationship.
Doctors, practice managers and hospital administrators are also very concerned about paperwork. MedPro responded with simplified invoices and one-flat-fee service plans. A MedPro invoice will never include mysterious add-on fees or charges.
The medical profession is swamped with new regulations and requirements, including ICD (International Classification of Diseases) 10. There are also a large number of other trainings required, including OSHA, HIPPA, and HazCom. In addition, there are safety audits to be performed and exposure control plans, fire prevention plans, and more. What a nightmare!
MedPro responded with the MedPro Online Safety Compliance Portal, a platform accessed through our website – this secure, cloud-based system includes modules for most compliance requirements and certifications can be obtained.
Another concern expressed by doctors and nurses was insurance. MedPro has always maintained a substantial level of coverage, over and above what is required because it gives our customers peace-of-mind.
Additional programs like Unwanted Pharmaceutical Disposal is available through MedPro. Patients should be encouraged to bring their old medications in and have them destroyed properly. Flushing meds down the drain or throwing them in the trash is very hazardous to the environment.
Last, but certainly not least is the area of customer support. Our customers in Denver can access customer support through our website with a ticket system, or they may call and ask for their Dedicated Customer Advocate. This person is charged with becoming completely familiar with all aspects of the accounts they monitor. When a customer calls they speak directly with their advocate who will handle every question, comment, or complaint and then promptly gain a resolution.
