All healthcare facilities must have optimal policies and procedures in place for the effective segregation and disposal of medical waste. There are many contributing factors that make safe and compliant medical waste disposal a challenge in busy, healthcare facilities. Due to the enormity and the plethora of medical waste generated in the healthcare industry, it is critical to overcome challenges and follow a safe and effective medical waste segregation and disposal plan.
Some of the biggest obstacles healthcare facilities face in following a safe, efficient and compliant medical waste disposal policy include:
Lack of training – educating and training hospital staff including physicians, nurses and nursing assistants is a challenge facing healthcare facilities. All staff must be properly trained on safe and compliant medical waste segregation and disposal procedures.
Overwhelming number of medical waste categories – while segregating all medical waste into broad categories may seem challenging, it is important to maintain safety and compliance to regulations.
Confusion surrounding regulations – regulations surrounding the disposal of medical waste and pharmaceuticals can be confusing. Rx Destroyer™ offers full compliance to federal regulations, compliance consultations and easy to use, compliant drug disposal products. We can help you to develop a plan that is compliant to Code of Federal Regulations, CFR 21, 40 and 42 to meet pharmaceutical waste disposal compliance.
Confusion with various collection containers – segregating medical waste requires a system with properly labeled medical waste disposal containers. Pharmaceutical waste disposal containers that neutralize medications on contact meet DEA regulations for compliant pharmaceutical waste disposal.
