Rochester boasts the 3rd largest population in New York, at 210,565, just behind New York City and Buffalo. The city was one of America’s first boomtowns, rising to prominence as many flour mills were built along the Genesee River and turned Rochester into a major manufacturing hub. The Rochester area gave birth to Kodak and Xerox corporations, which interestingly enough, was one of the main reasons FedEx’s founder, Fred Smith, pioneered the overnight delivery business in 1971. Xerox’s need to quickly get copier parts out of Rochester, its manufacturing headquarters, and into customer’s hands, enabled Rochester to be one of the 25 cities FedEx served on its first night of delivery operations. When one of Rochester’s many residents get sick, they turn to Highland Hospital and Rochester General Hospital to provide them with the care they need to return to health. These facilities, along with countless other clinics in the area, provide exceptional health care, but also produce outstanding amounts of medical waste. Due to the fact that medical waste is highly regulated on both the state and federal level, MedPro Disposal was founded to provide facilities in Rochester and across the country with low-cost, superior medical waste disposal. Medical waste can be many things but is generally anything that has come in contact with bodily fluids. This can include but is not limited to: IV bags, used sharps, soaked bandages, gauze pads, and even human tissue. When these items are used on a patient, they need to be immediately disposed of in the proper medical waste container, in order to prevent the contamination of sterile environments, which according to the CDC, resulted in 17 million cases of infections in hospitals in 2011. The reason medical waste is regulated and cannot be disposed of in the normal trash stream is due to the blood-borne pathogens that are often found in medical waste. This waste must be sterilized through incineration or autoclave technology before it can be disposed of in a designated landfill. Blood-borne pathogens have the potential of carrying potentially life-threatening diseases which can be detrimental to an individual’s health should they ever come in unprotected contact. MedPro Disposal is committed to ensuring the safe and proper disposal of these materials, in order to avoid any unintended consequences. Determining what goes in the medical waste bin and what can go in the normal trash bucket is easy as a MedPro customer. Following sign-up, your facility will be provided with a poster that clearly lists common materials found in a healthcare facility, along with the proper way of disposing them. This poster can be hung above the medical waste container and eliminates the guesswork associated with determining if something is safe to dispose of normally.
While we may specialize in medical waste disposal, MedPro also offers pharmaceutical disposal as well as OSHA compliance programs. Our pharmaceutical mail-back program is designed with simplicity in mind. Your facility will receive a 2.5 gallon bucket that is designed to be used as a waste bucket for old and unused medication. When that bucket reaches capacity, simply screw on the lid and attach the pre-paid shipping label for delivery to our disposal facility. Following this, your facility will receive a brand new bucket that is ready to be filled up again! The best part of this hassle-free program is that it is only a per-bucket charge, rather than monthly. This is because here at MedPro, we believe you should never overpay for a required service, and we see many customers take a few months to fill this bucket, which is why we do not see monthly payments as feasible.
Along with our premier disposal services, our OSHA compliance portal is the most robust, cost-effective method of ensuring your entire workforce is OSHA compliant. The online portal allows administrator access to go in and assign job-specific training modules for individual employees or groups, if desired. Once the employee in question completes their training, all certificates of completion are stored in a centralized location in the portal, which allows for quick viewing and access, should the need ever arise. Our online portal eliminates the need to hire an outside consultant, which is very costly and often requires your facility to shut down for half a day, resulting in lost revenue.
Medical costs are increasing across the country, and Rochester is no exception. MedPro Disposal can help save your practice money, as our Rochester customers consistently see savings in the 20-40% range compared to their previous vendors, and even more when they bundle our pharmaceutical disposal and OSHA compliance program. That is money that can be better spent improving your facilities resources, improving overall care for all.
Development of modern Rochester followed the American Revolution, and forced cession of their territory by the Iroquois after the defeat of Great Britain. Allied with the British, four major Iroquois tribes were essentially forced from New York. As a reward for their loyalty to the British Crown, they were given a large land grant on the Grand River in Canada.
