If you’re training medical professionals or healthcare support staff, you have medical waste. From dental schools to veterinary universities and even community colleges and vocational schools, the learning environment can create excessive amounts of medical waste that needs to be properly disposed of. In a student setting, practice materials and hazardous byproducts are created on a massive scale; these waste items must be disposed of in full compliance with all Federal, state and local regulations and can include:
- Infectious agents, cultures and culture medium
- Organic tissues from labs
- 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
- X-ray film and chemicals
- Miscellaneous medical or hazardous waste not otherwise specified
Disposing of School and University Medical Waste
Your organization likely already has a policy in place for handling and disposing of waste internally, but the disposal process can be problematic. Schools like Stanford University, Johns Hopkins and Cornell begin by fully defining what products and substances are considered hazardous and outlining the regulations that must be followed. Trade schools and universities that lack the big budget of these top schools still need to have the same level of attention to detail when it comes to medical waste disposal.
Your school must fully comply with all regulations, including those imposed by the Federal government, your own state and even your city or county. At Sanpro, we know that compliance can be overwhelming – and our solutions are designed to help you fully comply with an ever-changing landscape of regulation in an affordable way.
Medical Waste Disposal Regulations Compliance for Schools
Whether you provide actual medical services to consumers or simply train providers, you must fully comply with rules created by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of Transportation (DOT) and Joint Commission (TJC) when it comes to medical waste. You’ll also need to be aware of and comply with any state regulations as well. Failure to comply can have a significant impact on not only your costs, but your brand image and your ability to compete for students in a crowded marketplace.
