Located just off Interstate 64, South Charleston was established in 1906 and became incorporated in 1919. It has a population of 13,450 according to the 2010 census. Interestingly enough, the city is actually located northwest of the city of Charlestown, contradictory to its name. The area has hot, humid summers and mild to cool winters. When the residents of South Charleston get sick, they turn to Thomas Memorial Hospital and the surrounding healthcare facilities to care for them. Unfortunately, taking care of all those people results in a lot of waste, medical waste to be exact. Medical waste cannot be disposed of in the normal trash stream because it is often contaminated with blood-borne pathogens. Coming into unprotected contact with these pathogens can lead to the transmission of infectious diseases that have the potential to be life-altering. This is the reason medical waste is so highly regulated on the state and federal level, because it is harmful to individuals, as well as the beautiful South Charleston environment. As a MedPro customer, determining what is classified as medical waste is quite easy. As an example, IV bags, used sharps, soaked bandages, gauze pads and human tissue are all considered medical waste, just to name a few. However, that list is much longer. These items should be disposed of immediately after use, in order to prevent the spread of pathogens. According to the CDC, in 2011, there were 17 million cases of infection in hospitals due to the contamination of sterile environments. MedPro Disposal will send your facility a poster that can be hung above the medical waste container, which clearly outlines what can and cannot go in the medical waste container. This makes segregating waste hassle-free, and it ensures everything goes where it is supposed to. While disposing of medical waste is our specialty, we also offer other services in the South Charleston area! One of our very popular services is our pharmaceutical mail-back program, designed to be hassle-free for our clients. MedPro Disposal sends your facility a 2.5-gallon bucket that gets filled with your old or unused medications. When the bucket becomes full, simply attach the included pre-paid shipping label and send it off to our disposal facility. Once this happens, your facility will receive a brand new bucket that is ready to accept medication again. This service is very popular with assisted-living centers, nursing homes, and pharmacies. The best feature is that it is only a one-time fee, regardless of how long it takes to fill the bucket. Gone are the days of paying monthly for a service that you may not be using that month. Along with our disposal services, MedPro also offers a convenient, easy to use OSHA compliance portal for businesses in South Charleston. This online portal allows for an administrator to log in and assign job-specific training to individual employees, or group training can be assigned, if that is desired. When employees complete their training, all certificates of completion are stored in the portal in a centralized location, which makes viewing extremely easy, should the need ever arise. Our online portal eliminates the need to hire an outside consultant to come in and train your staff. This method requires shutting down for multiple hours, which results in lost revenue. Medical costs are consistently rising, so any methods that can save money are essential to a business’s bottom line. Here at MedPro Disposal, we believe that no one should ever have to overpay for a required service. That is why we offer no-frills pricing, with no hidden fees or fuel surcharges. Our customers in the South Charleston area typically see savings in the 20-40% range compared to their previous waste haulers. That’s 40% more money that can be better spent on improving your practice!
