Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Racine
Named after its’ location on the mouth of the Root River, right on the shores of Lake Michigan, Racine, WI is a city of unforgettable sights, sounds, and good living. Once a trading post for a several exports and goods, Racine, known for being a factory town, truly lives up to its name: “The Belle City of the Lakes.”
Racine, WI is the true definition of a melting pot. Known for having the largest North American settlement of Danes outside of Greenland, the city is filled with traces of Danish culture. Our team appreciates being able to enjoy the Kringle, a flaky, buttery Danish pastry that is simply irresistible. For the absolute best version of the “Official Pastry of Wisconsin,” we love visiting Bendtsen's Bakery and enjoying a hand-rolled, freshly baked Kringle. Since Racine has a history of glass blowing, we also like to visit Hot Shop Glass to get our creative juices flowing. Here, we enjoy making colorful, intriguing creations, such as pumpkins for Halloween, and even hearts for Valentine’s Day.
Racine also takes a conscientious approach to providing great healthcare. We admire Ascension All Saints Hospital for their unwavering commitment to molding students into productive practitioners and caring for patients. This teaching hospital has been ranked as one of the U.S. News & World Report’s High Performing Hospitals. Their attention to congestive heart failure has earned them a significantly better rating than similar hospitals in the nation.
Just like the hard-working, dedicated doctors and nurses of Racine, we are also dedicated to providing extraordinary healthcare waste management services.
Racine Healthcare Waste Management with a difference.
Daniels Health have been local to Racine since the early 2000’s when we launched our industry-redefining Sharpsmart reusable sharps container to the US healthcare market. In the last twenty years, fueled by our favorite Danish Kringle! We have expanded to be the first choice clinically-focused healthcare waste provider to thousands of hospitals and healthcare facilities across Wisconsin and the US. Passionate about driving safety and sustainability across every facet of healthcare waste management, we are involved in every step of the journey, meaning at no point when you engage Daniels will you be dealing with a middle man or having your waste treatment or services brokered to another company. In full cradle to grave assurance – we protect your risk in full circle management of all waste your facility generates.
Daniels Health has coined the term “working in your four walls” to explain the unique approach we take to healthcare waste management, particularly within hospitals or multi-site facilities where the complexity of multiple waste streams and a need for standardization and effective healthcare waste segregation is a driving factor. In our approach, we oversee every facet of the waste journey, from waste mapping (where should sharps and medical waste containers be positioned for safe access and optimum segregation outcomes), waste audits (is it working?!), education, compliance, storage optimization and finally the regulated treatment and manifesting of all waste streams. Our partnership with hospitals over the last two decades has driven transformative outcomes – in many cases upwards of 50% medical waste volume reductions with improved segregation programs, and a considerable reduction in occupational risks and needlestick injuries (and that’s not to mention the environmental impact!). For smaller facilities like surgery centers, skilled nursing facilities and dialysis centers, while less complex, our approach still remains the same – we start with you and your facility’s needs.
In designing a biohazardous waste management program, here’s what we focus on:
Are you segregating your non-hazardous pharmaceuticals and RCRA pharmaceutical waste? Have you adopted the USP800 standard or is your facility impacted by Subpart P? How can we drive improved compliance and cost reductions?
Are you paying too much for services you simply don’t need? Let’s right-size your service frequency appropriate to the waste you generate.
Are your staff confident in healthcare waste segregation? Let’s work on an education plan
Are your staff trained to handle infectious waste? We’ll introduce you to our online OSHA training and accreditation to ensure your compliance is taken care of
Do you have ongoing account management needs? We’ll introduce you to the local team who are going to serve you – from our account managers through to our transport and operations team.
Are you buying disposable boxes and containers that could be eliminated? With a minimum of 33% of the sharps and chemotherapy waste streams being the single-use container itself; you have a double cost impact of the purchase and the cost of disposal of the plastic container. We can help eliminate this.
Can we work together forever? We’re committed to grow with our customers and change as they do; through simple contracts, transparent pricing and flexible services we are committed to a future of making healthcare safer together.
