The "no touch" design of our Sharpsmart containers means you don't have to ever physically touch the container or the contents! Foot pedal operation and gravity-balanced safety trays eliminate safety, contamination and hygiene risk to healthcare and cleaning staff
Infection Control and Hospital Waste Management.
A Modern Approach.
Sharpsmart hospital waste management solutions are underpinned by an infection control approach that puts clinical staff safety, cleanliness and cross-contamination risk at the forefront of its purpose.
Serving some of the UK's leading healthcare institutions including London Health Sciences, William Osler Health System, Sick Kids and Health Sciences Centre, Sharpsmart has redefined hospital waste management as it relates to safety, infection control, labour efficiencies and the reduction of risk and patient interruptions. Designed to solve the patient-care and labour challenges of a clinical environment, Sharpsmart does not start at the loading dock where it’s too late to make changes that impact costs, efficiencies or cross-contamination - but rather we begin inside the four walls of healthcare.
- Hands-free containers that lead the industry in cleanliness, safety and security
- Department and location level meaningful data and reporting
- Comprehensive waste segregation and education programs that drive results
- Intelligent mapping of waste movement, disposal practices and labour efficiencies
- Integrated solutions for all healthcare waste streams that protect frontline clinical staff
Our New Normal Demands we look at healthcare waste through a clinical lens
With over half a million hospital acquired infections every year in the United Kingdom, NHS hospitals and Trusts are looking for environmental service solutions that reduce contamination risk within the clinical environment. Clinical waste management, the volume of patient interruptions, the cleanliness of bins and surfaces and the number of times waste is touched or handled, are all essential considerations of the modern hospital.
A New Approach to Hospital Waste Management
Our New Normal requires that we look at hospital waste management through a clinical lens; from waste mapping and scrutiny of how many times waste is touched, to the implementation of clinically-engineered containment solutions that drive safety and infection control outcomes, Sharpsmart is a service partner that understands the hospital environment and delivers solutions that enhance rather than interrupt patient care.
