Medical Waste Removal & Medical Record Destruction
Medical care is essential for the keeping and caring of our communities, and here at MedXWaste we remind our clients that part of that care includes proper medical waste removal. The improper management of waste generated from hospitals directly impacts staff members, patients, and the envionment. Of course, regulated medical waste isn’t exclusive to hospitals and other health care facilities. Tattoo parlors, funeral homes, and veterinary offices must adhere to the same stringent guidelines when it comes to handling their waste.
MedXWaste helps our customers maintain compliance with biomedical waste management, but beyond physical health, we also care about the identities of the communities we serve, namely the sensitive information that is managed on a daily basis throughout the facilities we assist. This information is kept and stored through medical records and other documents that are confidential in nature.
When it comes to keeping information private, few things are more important than medical records. Shredding is clearly the best way to dispose of old paperwork, but how can you be sure those records will be safe, once they’re sent to be destroyed?
Where MedXWaste handles the destruction and removal of your red bag waste, companies like Legal Shred handle the destruction of medical and patient records.
Did you know that medical records are one of the primary targets for identity thieves? Wrong-doers can steal your information to get health services or insurance.
