With the motto, “Proud History, Bright Future”, residents of Springfield, Oregon would say that just about sums it up. At the tip of Eugene, Springfield is just separated from Eugene to the west, mainly by Interstate 5 that is so profound in the state of Oregon. Just under 60,000 citizens, Springfield serves at the second most populated city after accounting for Eugene.
It all began when the Briggs family marked their territory in the Springfield area, way back in 1848. The city got its name after a natural spring that was in a nearby field inside of the town confines. At first, the economy of the town was highly dependent on the resources surrounding them, however, since 1990 the economy has diversified as well as strengthened due to PeaceHealth. PeaceHealth employs many in the city. More About Springfield: Settled by Elias and Mary Briggs, Springfield came to be. The Briggs were among the first group of people to travel to the area by the “Southern Route”. Elias Briggs and Williams Stevens source of income were through the ferry that they operated on the Willamette River. Back in 1871 the story has it that a group of Eugene businessmen paid $40,000 to Ben Holladay to bypass Springfield on the mainline construction of the Oregon and California Railroad. Still to this day, a rivalry exists between the two cities.No rivalry exists between MedPro Disposal and the great residents of Springfield, however. With PeaceHealth employing roughly 2.6 times more employees than the preceding employer, the need for medical waste disposal is a necessity. Whether you find yourself at Fresenius Medical Care or PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center, medical waste is prominent and in need of proper care. Education is the first step in training practice and its workers to remain safe and compliant. Medical waste is often misconceived as to what is truly entails. Broadly classified, medical waste is any item that comes in contact with bodily fluids. Further, it is any solidified waste that is generated as a result of diagnosing, treating, or immunizing humans.At one point in time, this waste was collected in a special garbage bag, and then disposed of just as any normal waste would be. In doing so, things started to backfire. What was noticed was that this waste was quickly spreading disease and virus that potentially could’ve lead to more than a few outbreaks. That said, today in any doctors’ office or healthcare facility, you will see the red biohazard waste containers.Gloves, as an example, when used to treat patients, must find themselves in a medical waste container immediately following their usage. The CDC reported in 2011 that upwards of 17 million patients were infected by the improper and unsafe practice of medical waste disposal. Sadly, that statistic did not end there. Roughly 99,000 of the 17 million cases lead to death. This is a problem that very well could’ve been avoided. Issues such as the CDC’s findings, are problems that MedPro Disposal knows how to avoid. We handle this type of matter daily, and we know the correct precautions to dissipate any room for error. Separation of different waste classifications are largely important. Non-hazardous and hazardous substances must not cross paths. Items such as needles, syringes, even gloves, need to be segregated from the non-hazardous wastes. These items have come in contact with bodily fluids, and many different types of people. That being said, at any point in time if the two were to connect, the entire mass of waste is deemed hazardous. If this were to happen, the correct line of disposal needs to take place.Safety is our main concern. We want your patients safe and your facility compliant. MedPro offers a wide variety of services, but our safety training portal, otherwise known as OSHA Compliance training, is a one-stop-shop to the education and safe handling of all wastes in your facility.This online portal educates and certifies your healthcare workers to keep them neck and neck with OSHA standards.
