Boise Idaho is home to Boise State University, and the healthcare needs of many residents are handled by doctors and nurses associated with the St. Luke’s Health System and St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center.
When many people think about people associated with their healthcare they never consider the supporting industries that work behind the scenes. Medical waste disposal is one of those industries, and it’s actually quite important.
Almost every medical facility produces medical waste, also called biohazardous waste, and infectious waste. Doctor’s offices, dental offices, veterinary clinics, all produce medical waste. Regulated medical waste, also known as infectious waste and biohazardous waste, is a waste that is known or reasonably expected to contain pathogens. Pathogens are microorganisms and other agents that can cause disease in humans or animals. Examples of regulated medical waste include blood-borne pathogens, pathological and anatomical waste, human blood and blood products, cultures and stocks of infectious agents, sharps such as needles, isolation waste generated by hospitalized patients who are isolated to protect others from communicable disease, and contaminated animal carcasses, body parts, and bedding.
In Idaho medical waste is regulated by the Department of Environmental Quality and their website has details about rules, restrictions, and definitions they use to maintain the public health. Due to the potential danger inherent with medical waste, companies that collect and transport it must be licensed and insured. Their employees must be thoroughly trained to avoid accidents. Everyone remembers the stories in the news about an outbreak of Ebola where people were stuck with infected needles and became seriously ill.
MedPro Waste Disposal operates in 44 states including Idaho, and in Boise we are an integral member of the healthcare community. Nationwide we have listened to healthcare professionals and they have told us that in the current healthcare climate they are very concerned about rising costs.
MedPro is committed to offering solutions, and so we made adjustments to our collection and transportation operations that have reduced our costs. These savings are passed on to our customers, and that benefit along with several others are bundled into what we call the MedPro Advantage:
