Medical Waste Disposal Shreveport, LA

Virtually all medical facilities produce a common by-product as a result of their daily activities: medical waste. Also called biomedical waste and biohazardous waste, these materials carry with them the potential for serious injury and even death and must be handled by experienced personnel.

Examples of infectious waste include discarded blood, sharps, unwanted microbiological cultures and stocks, identifiable body parts, other human or animal tissue, used bandages and dressings, discarded gloves, other medical supplies that may have been in contact with blood and body fluids.

Regulations exist on the local, state, and national level to protect the public and oversee the handling of medical waste. Only trained employees of licensed and insured service providers may collect, transport, and dispose of medical waste.

In Louisiana, the Department of Environmental Quality oversees medical waste collection, transportation, and disposal – details are at their website.

MedPro Medical Waste Disposal Shreveport, LA operates in 44 states including Louisiana and is rapidly growing. One reason we are increasing our market share is a bundle of services and customer benefits we call the MedPro Advantage: Doctors have asked for simplified billing, so our invoices are basic. A one-flat-fee is part of a customized plan for every customer. Extra charges or fees are never found on a MedPro invoice, and customers can pay electronically or by mail.

Medical administrators and physicians have also asked for pick-ups that fit their schedules, budgets, and their needs, so we have responded with exactly that. Other providers may schedule a pick-up for empty containers but not MedPro. Every customer is receives a “right-sized” service plan that schedules pick-ups only when needed, but never leaves waste too long.

Customer Support: Too often a call to “customer support” involves no support at all, but rather a long time on hold pressing buttons, only to be hung up on. MedPro Medical Waste Disposal Shreveport, LA decided a long time ago to have nothing to do with that. We created a position that correlates to our philosophy of one-on-one personal service: theDedicated Customer Advocate. This is a position for a responsive person to handle a limited number of accounts and assume responsibility for everything from schedules to billing to training. All questions, comments, or complaints are directed to this person, who is responsible for a timely response and resolution.

Training is an area MedPro excels above all others. Our Online Safety Compliance Portal is second-to-none in its functionality and ability to serve so many tasks related to compliance and safety. A platform accessed through our website, there are modules for OSHA, HazCom, and HIPPA training, safety audits and plans related to fire prevention, exposure control, and emergency preparedness. Certifications can be completed and records can be safely and securely stored in the cloud-based platform.

There are also online portals available for customer support and billing should you choose that option over calling.

In addition to online resources MedPro is pleased to supply our customers in Shreveport with printed materials and posters to remind personnel about safety handling sharps and other potentially hazardous items. What goes in the red bag? What doesn’t go in the red bag? Posters like this can save a lot of money by reminding people to be careful.

Customers appreciate our Unwanted Pharmaceutical Disposal program because patients often ask what to do with old medications. They should always be encouraged to dispose of them properly, not flushed down the drain or placed in the regular trash.

In large metropolitan areas, small towns, medical centers, and doctor’s offices, every MedPro customer receives a customized plan and personal service. The best first step is to get a quote by calling 888-641-6131. MedPro is happy to be an integral part of the excellent healthcare system in Shreveport.

Shreveport Little-Known Facts

During the Civil War, Shreveport was the capital of Louisiana from 1863 to 1865, having succeeded Baton Rouge and Opelousas after each fell under Union control. The city was a Confederate stronghold throughout the war and was the site of the headquarters of the Trans-Mississippi Department of the Confederate Army. Fort Albert Sidney Johnston was built on a ridge northwest of the city. Because of limited development in that area; the site is relatively undisturbed.
