Nested inside of Kent County, Warwick, Rhode Island is the second-largest city in the great state. With a population of 82,672, product of the 2010 census, comes the history of the town. Just outside of downtown Providence, and roughly 60 miles from Boston, Warwick is located in the hub of attraction, tourism, and tradition. Warwick was founded in 1642, by Samuel Gorton. Warwick came to be during King Philip’s War. In addition, Warwick was the home to the Gaspee Affair, which was significant in the early movement into the American Revolution. Interesting enough, Warwick is the home of the once general in the revolutionary war, Nathanael Greene, the second-in-command to George Washington.Let’s back up, though. The early history of Warwick is the reason for this conversation in the first place. Samuel Gorton, as mentioned previously, and Narragansett Indian Chief, Sachem Miantonomi agreed on the distribution of the land. This was known as the Shawhomett Purchase. Indian Chief Miantonomi agreed to accept 144 fathoms of Wampumpeague. Wampum was traditional shell beads that were created by the Eastern Woodland indigenous tribes. This was used as the payment for the land, but this was not done with ease. Two of the surrounding tribes claimed that Miantonomi sold the land without their consideration. The case was taken to Boston, put under Massachusetts rule. A militia was sent to arrest Gorton and his supporters, leading to all but three of them surrendering. Speaking in terms of economic demographics, Warwick has ten very large employers. The largest employer of people is Kent Memorial Hospital. Serving upwards of 82,000 people in the district as well as surrounding cities, the need for care and education is key.MedPro Disposal is here to assure the people of Warwick and Kent County safe and compliant disposal of their biohazard medical waste disposal. Before we jump into anything about us, let’s take a step back. People are bound to get sick, and the healthcare industry will never not be a necessity. Mass confusion sets in when people are asked about what classifies biohazard medical waste as medical waste. We will put it for you very simply. Examples always seem to help people grasp the idea with ease. Let’s use gauze pads for an example. Once a physician or nurse has conducted treatment or diagnosis with the use of this pad, that pad has now been deemed biohazard medical waste. From there, the physician must place that pad in the medical waste bin, keeping it out of reach from anyone. Disastrous results can result when improper handling as well as lack of education are present. Here at MedPro Disposal we will tell you first hand, you do not want that to be the case. Medical waste is not going to magically just remove itself from our very hospitals, in this case, Kent Memorial. Medical waste professionals came into play in order to stay up to date with governmental regulations and standards put in place. Here at MedPro, we are the professional medical waste garbage men. Sharps disposals sounds very simplistic and common in nature. It kind of is. The fact of the matter is, there are a few aspects to the correct disposal that we would love to catch you up to speed on. Our customers are constantly advised to make sure to dispose of their containers immediately once the bin has reached ¾’s capacity. Overfilling is unsafe, and not compliant.
We have seen practices get shut down and sometimes never reopen due to lack of education and up to date guidelines being followed. We don’t want that to happen to any of the citizens of Warwick, importantly Kent Memorial Hospital.
Practices need to be compliant in order to keep the doors open, as say all the time. In order to help your practice out, MedPro offers OSHA compliance training for every facility. It’s very user friendly, along with easy access for everyone. OSHA estimates that around 5.6 million healthcare professionals are handling medical waste on a daily basis. That is a lot of people, and a lot of biohazardous waste in the hands of someone that must know what they are dealing with. The online compliance portal is a one-stop shop for keeping users and facilities up to par. Any user can complete their training at their own convenience. There is no real expiration date, so don’t feel rushed. Inform and educate in order to keep not only you safe, but your patients.
MedPro is here to help educate and handle something that is in the back of facilities’ minds. No one is wanting to worry about medical waste, so that’s why we are here to take it off your hands. Environmental protection and safe-handling is always first priority. Re-allocate money you have been overspending on your medical waste, and let us do the heavy lifting. Your medical waste will be the least of your worries, just get it in our hands.
