Compliance is more important now than ever before. The government is increasingly using fines as a source of revenue. Fines for violations are increasing quickly, which means that just one misstep can be extremely costly and potentially disastrous for your business or practice.
All of the organizations shown above have the power to oversee medical waste compliance; there are many laws and regulations that are expected to be followed. OSHA and HIPAA are perhaps the most well-known of these, but it is important not to neglect the regulations and requirements set by the EPA and Georgia DNR.
The laws and regulations are extremely comprehensive. Specifics are laid out regarding everything from proper storage and segregation of waste to proper handling of Protected Health Information (PHI). This can make the task of maintaining compliance feel incredibly overwhelming.
Fortunately, you do not have to handle all of this alone. Red Bag Alliance’s team is well-equipped to help keep you compliant. Our team is ready to help!
