A little bit of safety planning will save thousands of dollars and maybe lives in the future. We have seen facilities store the biohazard outside in a storage building, and that is fine as long as it is accessible and weather tight. We have a facility that we have been working with for a while now, in their storage shed they keep the waste in the roof leaks and the floor is rotten. Every time we went to do a pike up the boxes were saturated with rainwater and was not safe for transport much less safe for employees or the environment.
We have done everything we can to get the facility to comply with safe handling procedures, but they are a bit stubborn. We switched them out from Cardboard boxes to plastic totes to help with the wetness until they get a new shed. Green Country Medical Waste is more than willing to work with each client to help when we can. Green Country Medical Waste Tulsa can process some medications but not all medications can be processed. Some are considered hazardous waste and will need a hazardous waste provider for them.
But the non-hazardous medication Green Country Medical Waste can dispose of with proper markings on the container. It adds to the cost of the box a little bit but not much. We have basically had 3 different medical waste containers. We have a twenty-four-gallon corrugated paper (cardboard) box and we have a 28-gallon plastic tote both have handles for safe handling we also have a 96 gal roll around cart. All three require a red bag liner. The red bag liner is where all the waste is put inside and then tied with a single knot to help prevent leakage if a tote or box gets turned over.
Each facility is required to have its own safety plan in place and that plan should spell out what needs to go in the regulated medical waste container and what cannot go in the regulated medical waste container. Hazardous waste cannot go in the regulated medical waste container. Pathological cannot go in the medical waste container like main torso arms and legs. Small pathological can go like fingers and eyeball stuff like that. I know that sounds bad, but this is the business that we are in.
Regular trash does not need to go in the regulated medical waste container unless it is from an isolation room, In an isolation room it is my understanding that all left over food and anything that cannot be disinfected and cleaned in a way for the virus not to spread in the facility. The safety of the residents in your facility is you top and utmost concern as it is ours. In the event you have to put someone in isolation we can bring out some extra supplies so you can handle the extra volume of waste. That is why we at Green Country Medical Waste Tulsa feels it is important to go with a local medical waste company so we can help take care of your facility and keep your facility waste free so when the state comes for an inspection you are not receiving a bunch of unwanted fines.
