The typical medical practice creates a variety of medical waste each day, regardless of focus or specialty. In addition to all the other regulations your practice needs to comply with, your medical waste needs to be disposed of properly to maintain a safe atmosphere for your patients and your staff. As a medical provider, you need to comply with Federal, state and possibly local regulations when it comes to medical waste and hazardous byproducts. Your medical waste goes far beyond sharps disposal and can include any or all the following items:
- Infectious agents, cultures and culture medium
- Chemical solutions
- Blood products
- Solid waste including contaminated gloves, towels and pipettes
- Liquid waste, including mediums, blood and bodily fluids
- Sharps waste including needles scalpels, slides and syringes
- Pathological waste
- Teeth, old crowns and amalgam
- Organic tissues from labs
- X-ray film and chemicals
- Miscellaneous medical or hazardous waste not otherwise specified
- Red-Bag Blood and OPIM
Disposing of Medical Office Waste
To be fully compliant with all regulations, you need to follow a specific process for the storage, transportation and final disposal of medical waste. The challenge for healthcare providers is the ever-changing landscape of regulations; keeping up with the defined procedures for disposal is a full-time job. The demands of hazardous waste disposal can rapidly become overwhelming, so busy medical practices choose third party disposal services to be sure all regulations are fully complied with and to avoid the risk of fines, fees or sanctions for improper storage or transport.
At Sanpro, we maintain local offices across the nation and consider tracking and complying with regulations to be part of our job. Our clients enjoy unsurpassed peace of mind, knowing that they are avoiding sanctions and fines.
Stay in Compliance with all Medical Waste Disposal Regulations
As a medical provider, you are subject to the same regulations as any hospital or facility, even if you practice alone; you must safely dispose of your waste in compliance with OSHA, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of Transportation (DOT) and Joint Commission (TJC) along with any regulations imposed by your own state or community. Some states are beginning to impose additional rules and limitations outlining the way waste is handled to protect residents and the environment.
