"I definitely recommend..."

Daniels and Paul Oliver have a good working relationship.  We really like the Sharpsmart for their safety and durability as well as the process Daniels uses makes sure the containers are clean and smelling good when returned back to the hospital.  Both Daniels and the hospital are ECO friendly so the match is good between us. I would definitely recommend Daniels.

"Significantly reduced costs..."

Since partnering with Daniels Health we have been able to implement standards across the board for all of our locations. We have significantly reduced our costs using Daniels containers. Daniels drivers are friendly and professional and we have not had to worry about waste being picked up in a timely manner. I cannot say enough how positive the impact has been for Florida Cancer Specialists since contracting with Daniels.

Summary of Risks in the management of pharmaceutical waste

 

Face heavy fines if non-compliant with Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)

  • Frequently used pharmaceuticals, such as physostigmine, warfarin, and nine chemotherapeutic agents, are regulated as hazardous waste under the RCRA. Failure to comply with hazardous waste regulations by improperly managing and disposing of such waste can result in potentially serious violations and large penalties.

 

Difficulties in managing multiple types of pharmaceutical waste and reducing impact on the environment.

  • There are various types of pharmaceutical medical waste that should be treated differently to meet legislative requirements including regulated hazardous pharmaceutical waste, non-regulated hazardous pharmaceutical waste and non-regulated “non- hazardous” pharmaceutical waste.

 

Be confronted with escalating costs in managing pharmaceutical waste management

  • The use of pharmaceuticals is on the rise due to the aging population and generally an increase in pharmaceutical use as more developed pharmaceuticals come to market.
  • Drug inventory reviews at a health facility can be intensive and are not always performed leading to missed opportunities in minimizing waste.
  • Developing the correct labelling regime for pharmaceutical waste management for health facilities can be time consuming and challenging
