Clinical waste solutions driven by safety
Sharpsmart has created first-class solutions to manage clinical waste disposal with methods that optimise safety and drive waste volume and cost reductions.
Given the potential infectious nature of clinical waste, stringent regulations govern its collection, transport and disposal. With over 30 years of experience in healthcare, Sharpsmart has the solutions, licensing and compliance expertise to protect the safety risk exposure and regulatory responsibilities of healthcare facilities in the total management of clinical waste.
Clinical Waste Management is more than an orange bag
Sharpsmart puts safety first when developing a total waste management plan which is why our clinical waste solutions aim to provide disposal of clinical waste at the point-of-use. By providing point-of-use disposal, risk of infection transfer is minimised while waste segregation is optimised. We have found that if the correct bags or containers are not easily accessible, waste is often incorrectly segregated. Our leading solutions to provide this are our Sharpsmart reusable sharps containers, Clinismart containers, and our Bag to Bedside System; all designed to achieve safety for clinicians and cost and environmental efficiency for healthcare facilities.
Education and Clinical Waste Optimisation
A successful clinical waste programme is not merely a "better container" or "more frequent pickups", it hinges on staff being educated, correct placement of bins, point-of-use disposal and continual improvement outworked through a waste management partnership. One of the tools we use to monitor and continously improvement waste efficiency outcomes is our Auditsmart KPI Management. Through bin and location audits we verify container efficiency, waste segregation accuracy, and fill levels, and use the data to provide reporting on clear actionable changes your facility can make to drive greater compliance, segregation, labour utilisation and cost reductions in your healthcare waste streams. To support clinical staff, we also offer a mobile waste verification tool that supports staff in identifying 'which waste goes where' at the touch of a screen. Across the life cycle of clinical waste, Sharpsmart are committed to delivering the safest, most sustainable and most cost effective solutions.
