Transporting regulated waste products is an essential function of any medical facility, but how do you know if it’s being managed correctly?
It can be tempting to assume that once you’ve found a medical waste provider your job is done, but based on state and federal regulations and guidelines, that is not the case. Your medical facility is responsible for its medical waste from the moment it’s generated to the moment it’s properly disposed of or destroyed. So, how do you avoid penalties and fines when working with a waste management provider?
Here is some important information to remember when you’re looking for a medical waste provider, along with a complete list of required permits to check even after you’ve signed the contract.
