Pharmaceutical Waste Solutions
Pharmaceutical Compliance Program
United Medical Waste Management advocates a Pharmaceutical Waste Collection Program that starts at the point of generation, keeping labor and supply costs low, minimizing employee exposure to hazardous drugs and potential infectious substances, and ensuring compliance with RCRA, OSHA, and DOT requirements. There are a number of ways to accomplish this task which vary by facility and even by department. United programs are customized based on the needs of each customer with the input of key individuals and departments as part of a pharmaceutical program implementation. United has a proven track record of providing its customers with the type of service and innovation they seek.
The overall program will be developed with participation from key stakeholders, to include the following steps:
- Formulary Characterization and Review (Defines hazardous classifications of all pharmacy waste)
- Program Development and Training (Implement a program on site to manage these hazards)
- Ongoing Customer Service & Technical Support
- Transportation and Disposal (Affordable and compliant solutions for disposal)
