MedPro Waste Disposal was born to help healthcare professionals like those in Sioux Falls to focus on what matters most: their patients.It is commonly misunderstood as to what the big deal for disposal of medical waste. Many are correct, it is not some complex idea. However, medical waste must be disposed of properly. Here at MedPro we have the guidelines set in stone to assure our customers proper disposal. If a patient were to come in contact with this biohazardous medical waste the results would not be something to shrug off. Biohazard medical waste has disastrous results. For example, if a patient were to accidentally come in contact with a contaminated needle that was improperly disposed of, they could very easily be infected with a blood-borne illness. This is why MedPro Disposal is here, Sioux Falls. Your patients trust in you to provide them accurate diagnosis and treatment. Let MedPro gain your trust in making sure accidents in your facility don’t happen, all the while keeping the environment in pristine shape.
Another misconception the public has is what is classified as medical waste. Believe it or not, MedPro hears this question on a daily basis. Let’s use needles as an example. Any time after a needle has been used on a patient, it must be disposed of. Not just any disposal either, it must be disposed of in its allocated waste bin. Statistics seem to catch people’s attention. To the Sioux Falls residents, did you know that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that in 2011 at least 17 million infections took place in hospitals all across our country? From that 17 million, 99,000 passed away.
With that being said, safely disposing and handling biohazard medical waste needs to be at the top of the list for hospitals. MedPro is known for its guaranteed safe handling as well as proper disposal servicing. We don’t want that 17 million to continuing growing, our mission is to reduce it.
Keeping non-hazardous and hazardous waste in separate containers is essential. If not, the entire container becomes hazardous if the wastes were to be intertwined. With sharps disposal, needles must be placed in a puncture-proof container that then goes into the larger medical waste box. Never overfill sharps containers. The rule of thumb: dispose of the container once it reaches ¾ capacity.
