Currently, Regulated Medical Waste Management is a tricky process. Plastic bags and cardboard boxes require multiple touches and take up the valuable time of clinical staff. When designing a reusable RMW container, we wanted to simplify the process to enable clinicians to focus on what matters most- quality patient care. The Daniels Medismart container is the only bagless solution for regulated medical waste. When paired with the Accessmart cart, it becomes entirely foot-pedal operated and mobile. This is the type of solution that healthcare professionals deserve, and (in our humble opinion)- it is long overdue.
