Columbia, SC

Columbia is located at 34-00’2’N 81-02’39’W. One of Columbia’s more prominent geographical features is its fall line, which is a boundary between an upland region and a coastal plain across which rivers from the upland region drop to the plain as falls or rapids. Columbia grew up at the fall line of the Congaree River, which is formed by the convergence of the Broad River and the Saluda River. The Congaree was the farthest inland point of river navigation. The energy of falling water also powered Columbia’s early mills. The city has capitalized on this location which includes three rivers by christening itself “The Columbia Riverbanks Region”. Columbia is located roughly halfway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Blue Ridge Mountains and sits at an elevation of around 292 ft (89 m).

Medical Waste Disposal Columbia, SC

Columbia is the largest city and the capital to the wonderful state of South Carolina. The largest city in the state attracts a dense population of people settling in the beautiful downtown area. The city has an incredible healthcare system servicing Richland County. With a great healthcare system comes with a great amount of medical waste. Home to some of the elite health care centers: Palmetto, Providence, and Lexington are only a small sample that provides the Columbia area residents with top-notch care. A common theme of providing the best care for their patients is seen throughout these facilities. With such a large population in the Columbia area, these healthcare centers produce a large amount of medical waste. So what exactly is classified as medical waste? Let’s use saturated gauze for an example: once the gauze is saturated it is deemed medical waste. Once the waste is classified as medical waste, it must be disposed properly. MedPro Disposal one of the leading providers of medical waste removal services in the industry is the solution to this problem. The heart of Columbia’s healthcare system started back in the summer of 1914 by Dr. Knowlton. He had purchased a small hospital located on the corner of Marion Street, two buildings that housed 70 beds accompanied by a nursing school. In the past there were limited, if any regulations that pertained to the healthcare system. Although, with the advancements in today’s healthcare practices, it is the top priority of the facilities in the Columbia area to be compliant with government regulations.The proper removal of regulated medical waste is an area MedPro Disposal thrives in. Servicing the Columbia area for years, our customers have always been extremely satisfied with our cost-effective and reliable service. The accommodations MedPro Disposal offers it is very easy to find a solution to your medical waste needs. We offer a variety of different programs including: regular medical waste removal, pharmaceutical disposal, and comprehensive OSHA training. What does it mean to be OSHA compliant? How do I know if all of my employees are certified in case of an OSHA walk through? Some common questions we hear from our customers on a daily basis. In 1970, The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was created with one goal in mind, to create a safer work environment. One way to ensure your employees are OSHA certified is to keep proper paperwork on file when you receive a walkthrough. MedPro Disposal offers a user-friendly online OSHA portal. The portal enables employees to take their OSHA training at their convenience. The online portal is filled with informational videos teaching the employees the information, followed by a multiple-choice test after each section. After each section is completed, the employee will be awarded an OSHA certificate which can be printed out, along with remaining on the portal. The easy access to the online portal simplifies the employers’ access to each employee’s certificates. The process of medical waste is fairly simple for our customers. The customer will provide MedPro Disposal with their frequency and volume, then a personalized schedule will be assigned to fit your needs. Once your facility has accumulated the medical waste, MedPro Disposal will come and remove the waste and give your facility new boxes to fill. The Environmental Protection Agency has enforced strict laws in the Columbia area regarding the proper disposal of pharmaceuticals. MedPro Disposal specializes in properly disposing of these pharmaceuticals to ensure the surrounding area is kept safe. Failure to dispose of your pharmaceuticals not only affects your facility, but also the surrounding population in the Columbia area. In the past, the traditional method of flushing these medications down the drain were seen to be the norm. Although, with further investigation, the EPA was finding trace amounts of these medications in the Columbia water systems. The method of filtering these trace amounts from the water was not properly removed. MedPro Disposal offers a pharmaceutical disposal program to alleviate this concern and ensures the residents of Columbia are safe.
