Medical Waste Disposal Monroe, Louisiana
Nothing says unity like the motto of the great city of Monroe, Louisiana. “One city, One Future”. Monroe is the eighth largest city in the state. At the census in 2010, Monroe’s population was just under 50,000 residents. There have been some errors however, in the counting of the population over the years. The mayor, Jamie Mayo, believes that Monroe is well over 50,000 citizens and will continue to work on the correct count. Monroe has a twin located just across the Ouachita River. West Monroe and Monroe are known as the Twin Cities of northeast Louisiana.
The first settlement was formerly referred to as Fort Miro. Monroe was adopted shortly after. The steam-powered paddle-wheeler known as James Monroe had substantial effects on settlers. This single event took the small settlement formed it into a town. The Ouachita River was a huge trading post, allowing Union boats to trade coffee, liquor, dry goods, and money for the cotton-rich city. As the Civil War continued its reign, deserters in Monroe came in plentiful quantities. Eventually, the Union Army sent special forces to arrest them.
In 1913, a man by the name of Joseph A. Biedenharn came to town. This was essential to the city of Monroe, due to Biedenharn being the first bottler of Coca-Cola. The production was moved from Vickburg, Mississippi to Monroe. Until Coca-Cola really took off, the soft drink was only available by being mixed at the soda fountain. Another great achievement of Biedenharn in partnership with his son, Malcom, was the founding of Delta Air Lines. Originally it was called Delta Dusters.
The headquarters for Delta Airlines called Monroe home for many years, during the latter 1920’s. With the constant growth, it moved. Still to this day, Monroe Regional Airport serves the many surrounding citizens. American Airlines, United, and Delta still serve these great citizens.
Much of the employment of Monroe is largely in part to St. Francis Medical Center, as well as Glenwood Regional Medical. Whether or not you have a large hospital, or small clinic, MedPro Disposal has Monroe covered. For a required service, we know the measures to take in order to assure your practice OSHA Compliancy and safe-handling. The need for medical waste disposal is an essential service. With the various diseases and sicknesses that people experience in today’s day, waste piles up. All this is very important, however, many are unsure what exactly goes in to the whole process.
So what is medical waste? We hear this question more than you might think. Consider yourself lucky, you’ve come to the right people. Biohazard medical waste is defined simply and an example will do best. Let’s use needles, for example. When these needles have gotten their use, it is required by law that they find their way in a biohazard medical waste bin. Additionally, gauze pads, bandages, even needles, all make up biohazardous waste. In 2011, the CDC released a statistic highlighting the amount of individuals in America that were running into infection. 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 our main priority for all of these reasons.
We are the solution. We handle these wastes daily, and we would say we have gotten pretty good at it. Leave it to us to instill our knowledge in your faculty and facility. This will dissipate any room for error to occur. It is very important to keep your wastes separated by classification. Sharps, gauze pads, needles, used gloves, and syringes, need to stay away from non-hazardous materials. This is essential. If by chance the two were to cross paths, the entire generation of waste is deemed hazardous. These hazardous materials have come in contact with bodily fluids, and they need to remain separated.
Safety is every facility’s first order of business. Without safety, problems are sure to come. This is why our OSHA Compliance training is highly recommended. OSHA compliance not only will teach your faculty the do’s and don’ts, but will certify them to handle your medical waste. The online portal is easily accessible and convenient for healthcare professionals. Time is of the essence, especially in the corridors of a health clinic. So, the training has a feature that will aid that directly. Saving your progression is essential to the portal. At any time can you come back and pick up where you left off. In addition to our training, we have quite a few other services.
Our main bread and butter is the RMW service. This is our biohazard medical waste disposal. With a large hospital like that of Oregon Health & Science University, mass amounts of waste are generated. Being in the area, MedPro handles this waste for you at a frequency to your liking. At any time, you can adjust that frequency, free of charge. Waste buildup does one of two things. First, your practice is now at risk for being uncompliant to OSHA standards. Secondly, hospitals and doctors’ offices must be clean and pristine at all times. Getting rid of each medical waste container as soon as it has filled is our main concern.
