Hammond, IN Medical Waste Disposal

Hammond, IN Medical Waste Disposal. Every hospital in the world creates medical waste, from the richest hospital in New York to the poorest hospital in Cuba. Thanks to the high quality of care from hospitals and care centers like Franciscan Health and the North Oaks Health System ensure the people of Hammond have the healthcare they need from any angle. The EPA generally defines medical waste as “Medical waste is a subset of wastes generated at health care facilities, such as hospitals, physicians’ offices, dental practices, blood banks, and veterinary hospitals/clinics, as well as medical research facilities and laboratories. Generally, medical waste is healthcare waste that that may be contaminated by blood, body fluids or other potentially infectious materials and is often referred to as regulated medical waste.”

Help for Everyone

For families struggling with money or who are not insured, there is the NorthShore Health Center on Indianapolis Blvd. who can help with everything from family care to OB/GYN to chiropractic care! The NorthShore Health Center has a sliding scale payment program, from as little as $25 per visit up to $65 for non or under insured people. They also have on site pharmacies who also help patients receive discounts for their medicines.

Proper Disposal

Now, all of these hospitals need medical waste disposal because without it simply walking around the hospital would be dangerous. From loose sharps to diseases transmitted via bodily fluids, there would be danger around every corner. One more aspect people don’t generally think of is medical waste can’t go into regular landfills for health reasons. If medical waste wasn’t properly disposed, all of that waste would be thrown in the regular garbage and transferred to a landfill VS. properly destroyed.

Ethical Process

Why should you use Healthcare Waste Management? Simple – we aren’t a hauler. A hauler is a company that takes your waste to a third party waste disposal plant, pays them a fee to dispose of your waste, and then turns around and charges you for the pleasure. HWM however actually owns our waste disposal plants which gives us multiple benefits including keeping costs down and letting us choose the most environmentally friendly disposal processes available. Another part of our commitment to the environment is using reusable waste and sharps disposal containers. Cutting down the waste caused by the containers is tremendous along with our intelligent truck routing so we use the least amount of gasoline as possible.
