Unlike that of the mountains in Colorado, Roseburg, Oregon is far from needing oxygen. Known as the timber capital of the nation, Roseburg serves as an alpha in timber production. 165 years ago, Roseburg came to be. Everyone doesn’t know everyone, like that of a small town, but you still get your smaller city feel in Roseburg. At the 2010 census reading, the population was just peering over 20,000 residents. The community developed on the exterior lining of the South Umpqua River. Interstate 5 serves as the main road getting you to and from. Roseburg got its name as a result of Aaron Rose establishing a homestead within the current confines of the city. This all took place on the 23rd of September, 1851. Rose even constructed the first building in the town, although it was nothing large. The building served as a grocery store in addition to a dining room and kitchen. Prior to this, his first building served as a roadside inn and tavern. Eventually, in 1853, Rose built an actual hotel.The city of Roseburg grew as a result of the growing timber industry. Roseburg Lumber opened its doors in 1937, by founder Kenneth Ford. This company brought many jobs, all the while driving more businesses into the town. There is one school district in the town, Roseburg School District. Umpqua Community College is a two-year college in the town as well.Two other driving forces in terms of employment and economic aid are the two main hospitals that reside in Roseburg. CHI Mercy Health Mercy Medical Center and the VA Roseburg Healthcare System work to cover the 10 square miles Roseburg covers. MedPro Disposal extends a helping hand to help educate the healthcare industry of Roseburg, all the while disposing of the medical waste generated.MedPro Disposal wants to make an everlasting impact on Roseburg, protecting the citizens from disastrous events that could take place in the event of improper medical waste disposal. The disposal can be tricky, so we want to help educate not only the healthcare professionals of Roseburg, but the citizens as well. Let’s begin this conversation by defining what exactly medical waste is. Medical waste is broadly classified as any item coming in contact with bodily fluids. To get more in-depth, it is any solid waste that is generated in the diagnosing, treating, or immunizing of humans. This waste once was collected in a special waste bag or plastic box and disposed of like normal garbage. What was found was that in doing so this spread disease and virus that potentially could cause outbreaks. With that being said, today you will see the red biohazardous containers and bags that line it are common in any hospital or doctors’ office. Let’s use an ordinary example to assure your understanding. Gloves, for example, are used to treat patients on a daily basis across the world. Once those gloves have been used to carry out whatever purpose needed, they must be disposed of immediately and properly. The CDC released a troubling statistic in 2011 stating that an educated estimation of 17 million patients were infected by the improper and unsafe practice of medical waste disposal. From that number, 99,000 deceased. These are issues that MedPro Disposal has solutions for, Roseburg. We handle this material daily, and we know what it takes to keep you safe. Keeping non-hazardous and hazardous material separated can be confusing but is highly necessary. Items such as gauze, sharps, used gloves, and syringes must remain segregated from non-hazardous waste that would be disposed of like normal garbage. If at any point in time the two categories of wastes were to intertwine, that entire sum of waste is deemed hazardous and must be disposed of accordingly.
