The Secure Supply Chain of Reusable Sharps Containers

As a national leader in healthcare waste management, Daniels Health is committed to proactively communicating any industry challenges and helping you overcome them. One such challenge that has arisen in the last week is a national shortage of disposable sharps containers and its resulting universal strain on hospital supply chain. We're here to help. 


This week our team has had an influx of calls from healthcare facilities across the nation confirming the impact of supply chain interruptions on not only standard order replenishment of single-use sharps containers, but more specifically, a pending shortage for planned vaccine rollouts and new treatment sites.  Our team, and our reusable sharps container, the Sharpsmart, are waiting in the wings to ensure your facility is not negatively impacted by supply chain interruptions.


Below you will find more information about the Daniels Health supply chain, our solution to disposable sharps containers, and how we can support you during this time.


01 / How Daniels Health can ensure you don't experience the same supply chain issues you're experiencing with disposable sharps containers

Fortunately, our approach towards healthcare waste management has always been built on reusable medical waste containment systems. This means we completely eliminate the need for disposable sharps containers, purchase dependency and month to month replenishment.

Modernizing your healthcare waste management strategy to a reusable sharps container will impact:

  • Your Safety: The Sharpsmart container is proven to reduce container-related injuries by up to 87%!
  • Your Sustainability: Switching to a reusable sharps container helps eliminate tons of single-use plastic from landfill each year
  • Your Peace of Mind: As all Daniels Health containers are manufactured in the US, and reusable, we have a closed-loop supply chain that eliminates many of the risks healthcare providers find with disposable containers. Not to mention, with a reusable system your facility is given the appropriate number of containers for your needs and you never have to worry about ordering stock.

In using Sharpsmart, you would be joining the ranks of several healthcare system trailblazers like Stanford Health, AdventHealth, and Inova.


02 / We were ready for COVID-19 and we are ready for this challenge now

The last year has been unprecedented, unplanned, and unimaginable. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are all very cognizant of current supply chain shortages in many areas of life. However, our team has come together to safeguard our operations, onboarding, and service to meet these surges of product and service needs from our healthcare partners.

All of our reusable containment systems are manufactured stateside and we have reinforced our stock for any influx bought on by both COVID-19 treatment as well as COVID-19 vaccine rollout. Our forward-preparation for cementing services and supply has also enabled us to provide fast and flexible setups of new sites. Across the last 12 months, we have supported not only our current customers with uninterrupted services, but also extended waste pickups and container supply to non-customers that were struggling with their current vendor in these unprecedented times. 

To put it simply, we have the means and the solutions for safe reliable sharps disposal – and we are ready to help you. All you have to do is reach out to us.


03 / How to reach out to Daniels Health if you are experiencing supply chain issues with your disposable sharps containers
