Fort Worth Medical Waste Disposal
Since its founding in 1994, Sharps Medical Waste Services has been located in Texas. With corporate offices near the Texas Medical Center, we have provided medical waste disposals services in Fort Worth for a variety of professionals. Our clients include dentists, veterinarians, physicians, surgery centers, and long-term care communities, such as assisted living facilities. We also provide support to home healthcare providers and other offices that generate smaller quantities for the effective and safe disposal of sharps and medical (biohazardous) waste. Customers have the option of pickup service by a Sharps representative or a sharps mailback system authorized by the USPS. Some customers opt for a system that combines both options.
As a heavily regulated industry, medical waste requires specialized handling techniques and procedures. These procedures make facilities comply with protective regulations. More importantly, they protect the employees and patients that are in your care. Regulated medical waste (RMW) producers in Fort Worth are overseen by several federal agencies. Controlled pharmaceutical waste is covered by the DEA. The Department of Transportation monitors situations where clients use a pickup service. The US Postal systems covers mailback programs. OSHA monitors situations where staff is involved. Within Texas, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) regulates all offices that generate medical waste, transport it, and dispose of it.
To ensure proper disposal and handling, any of these agencies may inspect operations they regulate that are devoted to medical waste management. While their inspections will include how medical waste is contained, stored, and packaged, they will also look at how it is labeled, transported, and disposed of. They will also look to ensure that employees have received any required training. Non-compliant organizations can face costly penalties both at the state and federal level. This can disrupt normal operations and bring unflattering publicity to an organization. In the end, it can cause irreparable damage to a healthcare organization’s reputation. Qualified medical waste management companies, such as Sharps Medical Waste Services in Fort Worth, act professionally within the regulations to reduce any risk exposure. We also provide the treatment methods outlined in the environmental standards. For more information, see Texas Medical Waste Disposal regulations.
