Medical facilities, ranging from small medical offices to large healthcare facilities, are regulated medical waste generators. That means that they are responsible for handling that waste responsibly and in compliance with federal and state regulations. Facilities are responsible for their medical waste from the time it is generated straight through until it is treated and is no longer hazardous to the public or the environment. This “cradle to grave” liability comes with strict rules on creating and keeping records of the medical waste management process. So what do you need to know about record keeping requirements to keep your practice/facility on the right side of those rules?
