Formerly known as Pawtuxet, Cranston, Rhode Island is yet another large hub in Rhode Island. Home to more than 80,000 residents, Cranston is far from your typical small town. Unsurprisingly, Cranston was named one of the “100 Best Places to Live” in the Money magazine roughly 10 years ago. No city gets this reputation by default. Cranston also hangs in with the top 25 safest cities in the great United States. The actual town of Cranston came to be as a result of portioning the city of Providence just north of the Pawtuxet River, hence the early name for the city: Pawtuxet. The actual city of Cranston was officially declared on March 10th of 1910. A large majority of the area Cranston rests on was purchased by Roger Williams, who bought the land from the Narragansett Indians in 1638. This purchase is known today as the Pawtuxet Purchase. The land covers 29.9 square miles in total, as well as 1.4 of these square miles being water. Something many don’t know is that the first auto race track in the United States calls Cranston home. Narragansett Park, off of Park Avenue, opened its doors in September of 1886. Originally it was a trotting track, however, don’t let that confuse you with the once Thoroughbred Horse Track that was once located in Pawtucket. Whichever sites you seek to explore, getting around Cranston is far from challenging. The four main highways go right through Cranston.There are four main freeways that stretch through the town of Cranston. From I-95 to RI 37, MedPro Disposal is here for the great city of Cranston, Rhode Island. With such a dense population, healthcare providers are prominent. With these large healthcare providers, such as Elanor Slater Hospital, comes large generations of medical waste. This waste must be disposed of properly, and safety is our first priority. It isn’t uncommon to not understand why exactly being safe and compliant with the disposal of your medical waste is so stressed. A human coming in contact with biohazardous waste more than often brings disastrous results. For example, if a patient or physician even were to get punctured with a contaminated needle, these individuals are now largely at risk for getting infected with a blood-borne virus. MedPro Disposal wants to assure the people of Cranston that we know the correct measures to assuring your practice safe and compliant disposals, for a service that is required. So, what is medical waste? Let’s dive into an example. Let us use gloves. Any time gloves have been used with a patient, they need to be disposed of properly as well as immediately. In combination with gloves, gauze pads and bandages, this all is deemed medical waste once It has been used to treat. Failure to take these steps, like stated earlier, leads to infections, and immediately creates an unsafe environment for not only all of the faculty but every patient entering those double doors. Failure to meet these measures is what the CDC found in 2011 resulted in 17 million Americans getting infected. Let’s take a step further into medical waste disposal. Keeping your non-hazardous waste and hazardous waste in separate containers is essential to a complaint and safe practice. If the two were to cross paths, the entire container will be deemed hazardous.In regards to sharps disposal, every sharp should be placed in a puncture-proof container which furthermore is placed in the larger medical waste box. This ensures safe and environmental precautions.Safety is our first priority here at MedPro. Every practice is as great as its weakest link. If the disposal isn’t being carried out properly, it will eventually catch up to you. We provide OSHA Compliance training in order to keep your practice and faculty up to speed on the latest guidelines and standards. OSHA estimates that roughly 5.6 million healthcare professionals handle contaminated waste every single day in the United States. Our online portal allows each member to sign in and complete the training at their own convenience. A great perk to the OSHA compliance portal is that it allows you to track all of your employee’s progress, to make sure everyone is getting caught up to speed. Cost-effective, accompanied by easy access.
Medical waste and OSHA Compliance training is not the only service MedPro offers. Pharmaceutical waste disposal is essential to the proper disposal of your unwanted and unused medications, whether they are over the counter or controlled. Many years ago, experts noticed that medications were getting into the water supply due to improper disposal of these medications. What once used to be the rule of thumb, now was turning into a disaster. Many used to think just flushing these unneeded medications down the toilet was no issue after the fact, however, it’s very challenging to keep these medications from getting into the water and sewage if they are not being disposed of per state and federal law.
