Types of Medical Waste

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

Of the total amount of waste generated by health-care activities, about 80% is general waste. The remaining 20% is considered hazardous material that may be infectious, toxic or radioactive. Every year an estimated 16 000 million injections are administered worldwide, but not all of the needles and syringes are properly disposed of afterwards. Health-care waste contains potentially harmful microorganisms which can infect hospital patients, health-care workers and the general public. Types of waste include infectious waste, pathological waste, sharps, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, genotoxic waste, radioactive waste, and heavy metals waste. Capital Express provides medical courier service for a variety of situations.

Medical Courier Services Are Vital for Proper Medical Waste Disposal

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Medical Courier Service by Capital ExpressMedical waste removal is a necessary component of hospital life, best served by a medical courier service like Capital Express. Hospitals have medical waste in the form of bodily fluids, organs and tissues, syringes, gauze and bandages, surgical gloves and used instruments, and anything else that has been tainted with blood or fluids. Instead of just tossing them in the trash as a common household does, hospitals are regulated by Federal and State mandates for the proper disposal of contaminated items. Medical courier services have trained their employees on the proper procedures for handling and transporting medical waste, including the federal and state paperwork required to track the waste from its source to its destination.

The Federal Government has appointed OSHA (United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration) to administer the requirements for medical waste disposal. Examples of these requirements are that contaminated needles must be placed in a container that is puncture proof, leak proof, must be color coded and labeled and must not be accessible in a way that a person could be punctured while handling the container.  The labels must be adhered to the container in a way that makes them very difficult to remove. The labels themselves must be fluorescent orange, with the labeling in large letters and contrasting color. Each medical product has a different procedure and requirement for the disposal of the article.

Along with the container types and the labeling information, the Department of Transportation regulates the tracking paperwork for the disposal of medical waste. The medical courier service is responsible for completing a tracking document that details the nature and magnitude of waste being removed. The tracking documents must be signed by both the shipper and the recipient of the medical waste. The signature verifies the correct procedures have been followed in packaging the waste, marking, and labeling the waste according to the DOT regulations.

Delivery Times and Services

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

For deliveries in Georgia, Courier Connection has several delivery time options available. The best option for a company with infrequent deliveries is one of the demand courier services. There are four different kinds of demand courier services available. For businesses that need frequent deliveries, however, the best option is probably going to be the scheduled delivery service. Packages are commonly delivered in a mere three to four hours. With the scheduled delivery service, the customer gets to decide the time and the date of delivery. 

The normal delivery service ensures that packages are delivered within two hours of order placement. For those who need even faster delivery, however, 1.5 service can be required. This, as the name suggests, provides packages delivered within 1.5 hours. If an hour and a half is still too slow for your courier needs, there is also a rush delivery service available. This service will deliver the customer’s package within the hour. The quickest option available is direct service. This service is for those who have absolutely no time to waste. Direct delivery service is when the package is picked up 20 minutes after order placement. The package is then delivered right away. 

For deliveries that are not local, Courier Connection has two more options. These options include: Courier Connection’s NFO service and a FedEx pickup and delivery option as well. The FedEx option is not available on the weekends. On weekdays it is available up until 8:30 at night. If you chose this option, Courier Connection will bring your package to the airport for you. If you chose the NFO service, however, Courier Connection will place your package on the soonest departing flight. With this option, delivery is usually made in 2-4 hours.
