Medical Waste Disposal Baton Rouge, LA


As the metropolitan Baton Rouge area grows and the population nears 1 million people, so grows its healthcare needs. Presently the area is anchored by the Baton Rouge General Medical Center, contributing vast experience and resources to a world-class healthcare delivery system.

The Baton Rouge healthcare system works best when the medical facilities, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers all work together sharing information and resources to reach common goal of safe, efficient, and effective delivery of services.

Hospitals and other medical facilities in Louisiana and across the U.S. share a common by-product: medical waste. Also called biomedical waste of biohazardous waste, these materials and fluids are potentially dangerous, even deadly. The Department of Environmental Quality oversees medical waste collection, transportation, and disposal – details are at their website.

Medical Waste Disposal Baton Rouge, LA

Hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, laboratories, doctors’ and veterinarians’ offices, private households-and many other places-have to dispose of materials that have been used in medical care or treatment. Some of this material is infectious-that is, it has the potential to cause some kind of infection and/or disease. Examples of medical wastes are used “sharps” – hypodermic needles and syringes, IV needles, scalpel blades, and glass items; items containing or soaked with blood or certain other body fluids; human or animal organs or body parts; lab cultures that may contain disease-causing agents; and things like gloves, bedding, dressings, sponges, and other items that have been used in surgery, autopsy, or treatment of patients with certain contagious diseases.

When doctors and medical administrators consider a relationship with a medical waste service provider they consider several factors. MedPro Medical Waste Disposal Baton Rouge, LA operates in 44 states, including Louisiana, and has grown rapidly because of our commitment to be responsive to our customers. Several solution-based services and benefits we developed have been bundled into a package we call the MedPro Advantage.

What is the MedPro Advantage?

Low Cost: Our customers told us the last several years have swamped them with new rules and regulations which have increased their costs. Insurance companies are paying them less, and they are working harder for less money – they’ve asked us to keep our costs low.

We keep costs low with streamlined service that emphasizes efficiency. Whenever possible, MedPro will arrange pick-ups from offices in the same geographic area for the same day. This reduces fuel costs and we pass those savings on to our customers.

Service that is “right-sized” means MedPro talks to customers about the number of pick-ups necessary for their particular situation and then sets up a service plan and schedule. If two pickups are needed, we won’t schedule three. Our customer will always only pay for what is best for them.

Training: MedPro personnel are trained and re-trained on the critical measures necessary for everyone’s safety and we share that knowledge with our partners. The MedPro Online Safety Compliance Portal (MOSCOP) is a unique and valuable resource offered to our customers that includes access to OSHA and HIPPA training as well as online safety plans including fire safety and exposure control. Certifications are available online as are regulations from across the country. Our Louisiana customers tell us they save time and money using the portal.

Low Risk: MedPro carries a very high amount of insurance coverage. Customers in Baton Rouge tell us they feel more secure when their risk is minimized and we have always maintained this important benefit.

Customer Support: Our customers have asked us to be available and responsive whenever they reach out to us and MedPro Medical Waste Disposal Baton Rouge, LA has responded with the Dedicated Customer Advocate. This unique position was created to place an accessible human contact in easy reach of our customers. Each customer is introduced to their own advocate on day one of their relationship with MedPro.

Any issues, questions, compliments or complaints are directed to this person who is charged with efficient resolution and customer satisfaction.

We are also pleased to offer customers in Baton Rouge our Unwanted Pharmaceutical Disposal Program. This program is used to dispose of old and expired medications, controlled and non-controlled.

Baton Rouge is a dynamic and progressive city with a dedicated team of medical professionals committed to excellence. MedPro is proud to be on board and invites inquiries about our prices and services by calling our sales team at 888-641-6131.

Baton Rouge Little-Known Facts

The European-American history of Baton Rouge dates from 1699, when French explorer Sieur d'Iberville leading an exploration party up the Mississippi River saw a reddish cypress pole festooned with bloody animals that marked the boundary between the Houma and Bayou Goula tribal hunting grounds. They called the pole and its location le baton rouge, or the red stick.
