The alpha male of cities in Oregon, Portland rests in the Willamette Valley region of the Pacific Northwestern United States. With a population just over half of a million residents, Portland is a prime sector for employment, economic performance, and exclusive tourism. Portland got its name from the city resting on the coast of Maine, otherwise known as the once English Isle of Portland. Migrants began to move in in the early 1830s which happened to be the termination of the Oregon Trail. Its access to water proved to be a significant aid to the trade of goods and services. The timber industry skyrocketed as a result of this access. Port access sought organized crime and racketeering at the turn of the 20th century. All thanks to the second World War, this hard-nosed flavor began to deteriorate. Portland stands for individuality and uniqueness. Many would tell you that Portland is known for its liberal agenda, accompanied by the reputation of the counterculture. Portland was put on the map, becoming the eighth most popular place to settle.A large 145 square miles of land coverage brings character and opportunity. Far from uncommon, bridges span across the Willamette River neighboring with the downtown sector. Many of these bridges are historic pieces of American culture. Portland does not just receive the nickname “Bridgetown” by accident. Three of these bridges are upwards of 100 years old, claiming them as historic landmarks. The Willamette River serves more purpose than that, however. This body of water separates east and west Portland. From the West Hills to Gresham, Portland has some of the most unique neighborhoods and architecture to offer. Until the “Great Renumbering” that took place on the 2nd of September back in 1931, Portland suburbia was all over the place. Standardizing street name patterns and quadrant division finally got the neighboring metropolitan areas to coercively work together matter which historical bridge you find yourself traveling over, you will find yourself a healthcare provider at every turn. Portland houses roughly 632,309 residents and growing. From Shriners Hospitals for Children to Oregon Health & Science University, health care is the least of your concerns. With large populations and large quantities of facilities in production, the need for medical waste disposal is essential.MedPro Disposal wants the people of Portland to know the impact can bring to the city. Our mission is to keep your residents safe and keep your doors open. Disposal of medical waste can be challenging, more than you may think. What exactly is medical waste? We hear this question more than you might think. At this point in time, you are talking to professionals on the topic. Biohazard medical waste is defined as very simple, and an example will do best. Let’s say surgical gloves, for example, are used on a patient. Once these gloves have gotten their use, it is required as well as essential that they find their way in a biohazard medical waste bin immediately following their use. In addition to these surgical gloves, gauze pads, bandages, needles, they all makeup biohazardous waste. In 2011, the CDC released a statistic highlighting the amount of individuals in America that were running into infection as a result of improper handling and disposal of these wastes. 17 million people were infected, eventually leading to 99,000 of them experiencing death. This was all a result of the lack of procedures in place, as well as the lack of education. The good news is that we have a solution. We handle these wastes on a daily basis, so leave it to us to teach you what we know, and dissipate any room for error.
Keeping non-hazardous and hazardous is very important. Sharps, gauze pads, needles, used gloves, and syringes, need to stay away from non-hazardous materials. This is essential. If by chance the two were to cross paths, the entire generation of waste is deemed hazardous. These hazardous materials have come in contact with bodily fluids, and they need to remain separated.
Safety is every facility’s first order of business. Without safety, problems are sure to come. This is why our OSHA Compliance training is highly recommended. OSHA compliance not only will teach your faculty the do’s and don’ts but will certify them to handle your medical waste. The online portal is easily accessible and convenient for healthcare professionals. Time is of the essence, we understand. This is why the feature of saving your progression is essential to the portal. At any time can you come back and pick up where you left off.
Our main bread and butter is the RMW service. This is our biohazard medical waste disposal. With a large hospital like that of Oregon Health & Science University, mass amounts of waste are generated. Being in the area, MedPro handles this waste for you at a frequency to your liking. At any time, you can adjust that frequency, free of charge. Waste buildup does one of two things. First, your practice is now at risk for being uncompliant to OSHA standards. Secondly, hospitals and doctors’ offices must be clean and pristine at all times. Getting rid of each medical waste container as soon as it has filled is our main concern.
MedPro Disposal came into the game in order to help facilities cut annual costs, for a service that is required by law. On average, we save our customers 20-40% on their medical waste in comparison to their current spend. Medical costs are constantly on the rise, and many practices were looking for an alternative solution. MedPro solely is concerned with saving your facility money, certified medical waste handling, and getting you back to your patients. The city of Portland is in MedPro’s best interest at all times.
