Medical Waste Disposal Athens, GA
Athens is a city of approximately 155,000 people and is served by St. Mary’s Hospital Healthcare System and the Athens Regional Health System. A medical partnership between the University of Georgia and Georgia Regents University brings increased resources and research to the region and bolsters the overall prestige and quality of an excellent healthcare delivery system.
Doctors and nurses in Athens work along with the hospitals and several medical support industries to deliver superior healthcare to everyone who lives and works in the Athens area. One medical support industry is medical waste disposal. Not exactly the subject of dinner conversation, medical waste is a by-product of virtually all medical facilities and consists of needles, bandages, tubing, and other items that have come into contact with human or animal bodily fluids or tissue.
This is not your average trash. Medical waste, also called biohazardous waste and biomedical waste has the potential to carry and spread infectious diseases like Ebola. Medical waste is to be handled by trained, experienced personnel only. Companies that provide medical waste disposal services must be licensed, insured, and follow very carefully the rules and regulations set down by states and the Federal government.
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.
MedPro Waste Disposal operates in 44 states and has earned a reputation for reliable, safe, service and very competitive prices. We are a responsive company, listening to doctors, nurses, and administrators and responding with solution-based answers.
Recent changes in the medical industry include new regulations, mostly pertaining to insurance, which require more paperwork and more personnel to deal with the paperwork. Hospital and medical practice budgets are stretched to the limit, so every possible effort must be made to cut costs.
Cost – MedPro uses our national presence to coordinate collection and transportation of medical waste in a manner that saves time, labor, and fuel. These savings all translate to lower costs for us, and we pass these savings on to our customers.
Every MedPro customer receives a right-sized service plan, which means it fits their needs. The right number of pick-ups at the right frequency to meet their output and their schedule. MedPro will never charge to stop and pick up an empty container – that just doesn’t make sense.
MedPro listened to customers who expressed a need to get safety training without taking a lot of time out from their busy work. MedPro responded with a powerful online platform, the MedPro Online Safety Compliance Portal. This is a versatile and comprehensive cloud-based system of training modules and other benefits that customers have rated very highly. Some of the resources online are:
- HazCom, HIPPA, and BBP Training
- Online Safety Audits
- Online Safety Plans – including fire prevention and exposure control
- ICD9 to ICD10 conversion tool
Every MedPro customer has access to the platform.
Medical practices asked us for lower risk. MedPro had that one covered, as we have always maintained a very high level of insurance coverage. Above and beyond the required amount, peace -of-mind is expensive, but worth every penny.
Medical professionals asked us to respect their time by having a customer service unit that is available and responsive. MedPro created the Dedicated Customer Advocate position, a person assigned to a limited number of accounts who is the primary point-of-contact for every customer. Customers like being able to call MedPro, ask for their rep by name, and then get prompt and accurate answers to their questions and concerns.
