Medical Waste Disposal Spring Hill

Healthcare Waste Management offers Medical Waste Disposal services, including infectious, biohazard, sharps and Medical Waste Disposal Spring Hill Tennesseemore. Call us today to find a solution for your medical waste needs.

We strive to provide our customers with the best possible service and the best pricing. To do that we knew we had to provide the service from start to finish. That is not the case in a lot of companies. In our case, it means we directly employ the drivers that walk into your office, we own the trucks that haul your waste and we own the processing plants that destroy your waste.

When looking for a company to provide this service, ask these three simple questions. By doing so you will start to understand what type of company they are. This also starts to layout the type of service one might expect. If they do not control the drivers, trucks, or treatment there is a lot out of their control and thus the potential for a lot more customer service type concerns.

Are the drivers your direct W2 employees?

Do you own the trucks that will haul my waste?

Do you open the processing plants that will destroy my waste?

If you do ask these questions and get a no, you might want to think of the impact it could have on your service. If the drivers are not direct employees, there could be service issues, personal issues and safety issues that would be hard to have direction over if that person is not a direct employee.

Without owning the trucks and the routes it could be hard to get service outside of a normal schedule, lets say you fill up quicker than normal one month, how easy is it to re-route a truck you do not have direction over those trucks?

Spring Hill, TN 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.
