Contamination-free Clinical Waste Containers
Sharpsmart's clean container movement is changing the industry’s perception of how clinical waste should be disposed and transported.
In typical healthcare settings, reusable containers are lined with a bag and decanted once the bag is full. This practice leads to bins in patient environments not been cleaned, harbouring pathogens and accelerating risk of cross-contamination. At Sharpsmart, all of our sharps, clinical waste, cytotoxic and pharmaceutical containers are hands-free, and furthermore undergo a rigorous 6-stage robotic washing decontamination and sanitisation process after each use. We are proud to be “moving the goalposts” of what safety in clinical waste containers should look like, our results across needlestick injury reduction, segregation, cost reduction and landfill diversion prove that we’re on the right path!
Divert 40-70% of your Clinical Waste
As much as 50% of the clinical waste stream in UK hospitals is actually incorrectly segregated general or offensive waste.
The financial implications of general waste being processed through a clinical waste stream is significant, as is the environmental impact. Our Bag to Bedside solution is designed to optimise disposal at point of generation; comprising a range of bespoke containment systems, blended learning tools and an intuitive segregation methodology, the Bag to Bedside system typically results in 40-70% diversion of clinical waste into offensive or recycling waste streams.
Track your waste by location
Tracsmart is an industry-leading mobile scanning technology that delivers real-time waste movement data to manage compliance, costs and environmental footprint.
Our mobile technology provides porters with an intuitive and easy-to-use scanning system which logs the exact waste collection location, fill-level of the bin and easy identification of compliance risks. Bringing full transparency to the daily management of clinical waste streams, Tracsmart delivers real-time data that enables hospitals to manage their costs, waste stream efficiencies, environmental footprint and compliance risks without any additional labour requirements.
We make things move!
