Biomedical Waste Management

Medical waste services
National Medical Waste helps healthcare professionals meet their biomedical disposal needs while staying in compliance with all federal and state regulations. Storing and discarding biomedical waste is an essential part of the healthcare system, so your business should always partner with a disposal team that values public health. Our goal is to offer the highest level of service and compliance at the best price, meaning that you can invest more time and money into the patient services that matter most.

What is Biomedical Waste?
All healthcare facilities use a variety of medical instruments, garments, and other materials that have come in contact with human bodily fluids. These biomedical wastes are often referred to as “regulated medical wastes” (RMW). Some examples might include: soiled bandages, used latex gloves, contaminated syringes and sharps, unused medications, or other human waste products. Because bloodborne pathogens can pose a major infectious health risk, government agencies regulate how healthcare providers should store and process this material. We stay up-to-date on changes in the industry and answer any questions you have about approved disposal techniques.

Offering Nationwide Disposal Services
Creating the right biomedical waste program depends on several factors: total waste output, location, state laws, and practice area. For some healthcare professionals, monthly pickup services are the perfect balance of cost and frequency. For other large-scale facilities, bi-weekly or even daily services may be necessary.

On-site Scheduled Pickup
National Medical Waste will build a customized pickup schedule for your facility’s biomedical waste. Our licensed professionals will arrive directly at your business address to transport the materials to a secure processing center. You can schedule these appointments on a recurring basis or an as-needed basis.


Medical Waste Disposal

Medical waste
All healthcare facilities discard materials and waste products that require special disposal treatment. For the safety of public health, medical waste is highly regulated by state and national health agencies, so simply throwing these materials into the trash is often illegal and punishable by fine. Any waste products like gauze or sharps that come in contact with bodily fluids are classified as “regulated medical wastes” (RMW). Some examples of medical waste might include: soiled gloves and bandages, discarded medical instruments like syringes or sharps, and unused medications. These contaminated materials must be discarded using an approved medical waste disposal process like incineration or steam sterilization.

Sharps Waste Disposal

Sharps waste can include a variety of instruments. Things like used syringes, operating knives and blades, glass, and generally any tool used to puncture is controlled under similar regulations to traditional medical waste. Sharps waste disposal is particularly at risk of containing and transmitting blood-borne pathogens.

Sharps waste is classified as a biohazard and it must be dealt with accordingly. When uncontrolled, the disposal of sharps waste puts medical professionals and the public at risk of contracting serious diseases such as Hepatitis and HIV. The goal of sharps waste disposal is to minimize handling from the moment the waste is created. Strict government protocol encourages as little handling as possible by medical staff as well as self-locking, sealable containers made of plastic or other impermeable material. Once disposed, sharps waste is handled carefully at a facility designed to efficiently and completely destroy any blood-borne pathogens as well as recycle materials when possible.

National Medical Waste has years of combined experience handling biomedical waste, biohazard waste, medical waste and sharps waste.
