Medical Waste Disposal Bossier City, LA
“Union, Justice, Confidence”. Bossier City, Louisiana is another major metropolis in the state. The 2013 estimated census put the population just over 66,000 residents. The city is nudged into the eastern bank of the Red River. Shreveport is just opposite of the bank from Bossier City. Bossier City is the middleman of the region known as Ark-La-Tex.
Reaching back into the 1830’s, Bossier was a plantation called Elysian Grove. James Cane and his wife Mary D.C. Cane were the owners. Originally, the area was a trading post across the river, which was known as Caddio Indian Land. This plantation’s loading and unloading dock later was known as Cane’s Landing. The land got its name honoring Pierre Evariste John Baptiste Bossier, whom was a general in the Creole Army. He was considered one of the first settlers in the area. During Civil War times, Cane’s Landing served as a host for Confederate soldiers. The plantation was fortified to protect Shreveport.
For a 40-year stretch, 1930-1970 roughly, Bossier was both regionally and nationally known for entertainment. The district was called the Bossier Strip, which took U.S. Highway 80 and made its way through the city. Ever been to Vegas? For quite some time this strip was well known for having entertainment opportunities just like that of the city that never sleeps. Another main attraction is the old home of the Shreveport Battle Wings arena football team. The CenturyLink Center hosts top performances. Rodeos, ice shows, and even children’s entertainment are even hosted here too. No matter what time of year it is, the CenturyLink Center may have entertainment you want to see.

The process of disposal is likely unknown.
Classifying medical waste is essential before disposal procedures are even carried out. So, what exactly is medical waste? We hear this question more than you might think. Biohazard medical waste is defined as very simple, and an example will do best. Let’s say surgical gloves, for example, are used on a patient. Once these gloves have gotten their use, it is required as well as essential that they find their way in a biohazard medical waste bin immediately following their use. In addition to these surgical gloves, gauze pads, bandages, needles, they all make up biohazardous waste. In 2011, the CDC released a statistic highlighting the amount of individuals in America that were running into infection as a result of improper handling and disposal of these wastes. 17 million people were infected, eventually leading to 99,000 of them experiencing death. This was all a result of the lack of procedures in place, as well as the lack of education. Safety is the first step.
Safety should be at the top of the list for every practice. With medical waste, there is plenty of room for error. This is where OSHA Compliance training, offered by MedPro, comes in handy.
