Medical Waste Disposal Lorain

Healthcare Waste Management is a medical waste disposal company, we proudly service the Midwestern states and it is our passion to provide you with the best possible service at economical pricing.

Anyone can say that, words are merely words, but our business differentiator is we have invested in our business, so Medical Waste Disposal Lorain Ohiowe are able to provide you with “the best possible service at economical pricing”.

We identified three main contact points we needed to have direction over to provide you with quality service.

  1. Your contract for service.
  2. The Driver that comes into your facility.
  3. The truck that hauls your waste.

When you have a contract for service, you want to make sure the company you contract with does contact points two and three above. When you contract with a company that does not have any say-so over the trucks or drivers, that could cause customer service type concerns, missed pickups, etc. They would not have any control to say, hey driver, turn around and go back to Doctor Doe’s office.

For us to able to provide you with great customer service, three things were needed. The contract, drivers and trucks all had to be under one roof. In other words, the medical waste disposal contract, drivers, and trucks should all be the same company.

For cost savings we also identified we had to own the medical waste disposal processing plants. Most companies only haul the waste and then take it to another company to destroy, when two companies are making money from your one bill you can see how that would drive up cost.   

Healthcare Waste Management directly employs the drivers that walk into your office, we own the trucks that haul the medical waste and we own the medical waste processing plants that destroy your waste.

Call us today for a free quote, we are always ready to help or answer any questions.

Lorain, OH Medical Waste FAQ and Related Searches

What is Medical Waste?

Medical waste is healthcare trash that contains infectious or potentially infectious items. It can come from hospitals, medical clinics, veterinary offices, dental clinics, research facilities, or medical laboratories. It can contain blood or other bodily fluids, or it can appear benign, like gloves or gowns.

According to the Medical Waste Tracking Act of 1988, it’s defined as any waste created during treatment, testing, immunization, research, or diagnosis of human beings and animals. Examples include sharps like scalpels or needles, tissue, fluids, glassware, swabs, culture dishes, or bandages.

 

What are some Examples of Medical Waste?
  • Expired vaccines
  • Tissue from humans or animals
  • Gowns, gloves, or gauze that may have blood on them
  • Waste from rooms of patients with infectious diseases
  • Needles, scalpels, and broken glass used in procedures
  • Laboratory cultures, stocks, and contaminated culture paraphernalia
  • Bedding from infected animals 
What are the types of medical waste?

The WHO identifies the 8 categories of medical waste as:

  • Infectious waste
  • Sharps waste
  • Pathological waste
  • Chemical waste
  • Cytotoxic waste
  • Pharmaceutical waste
  • Radioactive waste
  • Nonhazardous general waste

Those types cover all the potential varieties and sources of regulated and non-regulated healthcare waste.

Who generates medical waste?

You know hospitals and doctor’s offices create medical waste. But blood banks, dental clinics, and urgent care clinics create it too. Pharmacies, veterinary clinics, medical testing labs, research labs, nursing homes, hotels where patients stay, and funeral homes also create regulated waste.

Even an office building can generate biohazardous waste. Why? Because if someone gets a nosebleed at work and uses a tissue to stop it, they’ve created regulated waste. There was a hotel in Boston, next door to Mass General Hospital, was fined twice for medical waste violations from hotel guests.
