Founded near historic Native American lands as a trading and transportation center, Saint Paul, Minnesota rose to prominence when it was named the capital of the Minnesota Territory in 1849. Saint Paul lies on the east bank of the Mississippi river, situated near Minneapolis. The two form the “Twin Cities,” which is the 16th largest metropolitan area in the United States, with just over 3.5 million residents.
When visiting Saint Paul, it isn’t uncommon to come across individuals who are willing to have lengthy, meaningful conversations with new-comers. That’s because Saint Paul is known as having one of the highest literacy rates in the entire country.
In 1819, Fort Snelling was built on the territory, and attracted many French-Canadian settlers that were seeking a safe place to live. Fur traders, explorers, and missionaries all came to the area for the fort’s protections. Years following, as whiskey trade flourished, Fort officers banned settlers from the Fort lands. Pierre “Pig’s Eye” Parrant, infamous for particularly irritating officials, set up a tavern known as the Pig’s Eye, near present day Lambert’s Landing. By 1840, Pig’s Eye Landing, as it was called by the locals, had become an important trading center and rest stop for settlers heading further west.

Saint Paul is often referred to as the “the most livable city in America,” which can only remain possible with safe and efficient biohazardous waste disposal. This is where MedPro Disposal comes into play.
United, Regions, and St. Joseph’s Hospital all provide the Saint Paul area with top-notch medical services, keeping the residents happy and healthy. However, those large hospitals create large amounts of medical waste, which must be disposed of properly. Some residents may struggle to understand why the safe, compliant disposal of medical waste is so important. Coming in contact with biohazardous waste can have disastrous results. For example, getting accidently stuck with a contaminated needle could infect the unsuspecting victim with a blood-borne virus. MedPro Disposal is here to protect Saint Paul and its residents, all while keeping the environment clean and pristine.
So, what is classified as medical waste? Let’s use gloves as an example. Any time gloves are used with a patient, they need to be disposed of properly and immediately, along with used gauze and bandages. Failure to do so can lead to infections and contamination of sterile environments, which, according to the CDC, resulted in 17 million cases of infection in hospitals during 2011.
Keeping non-hazardous and hazardous waste in separate containers is essential. Otherwise, the entire container will be deemed hazardous if the wastes were to be intertwined. For sharps, they must be placed in a puncture-proof container that then goes into the larger medical waste box. It is important to never overfill sharps containers, in order to prevent accidental spillage or puncture. The rule of thumb: dispose of the container once it reaches ¾ capacity.

It is the most cost-efficient, robust way of training your employees the correct way.

The original name of the settlement that became St. Paul was Pig's Eye. Named for the French-Canadian whiskey trader, Pierre "Pig's Eye" Parrant, who had led squatters to the settlement.
