Clinical Waste and Sharps,
Managing waste safely in the patient environment
Designed as a point-of-use sharps solution, the Sharpsmart AT64 + S14 + Accessmart combo enables dual hands-free disposal with reduced footprint. With infectious waste deposited into the AT64, the co-mounted S14 captures smaller needles and finer syringes in its counter-balanced safety tray. Giving seamless mobility to the movement of waste, this innovative Sharpsmart solution enables clinical staff to move waste in and out of patient environments safely.
Let’s together make needlestick injuries a thing of the past
Recent studies conducted across the United Kingdom estimate 100,000 needlestick and other sharps related injuries are sustained by healthcare personnel in the UK annually. We are passionate about reducing this number. Learn how Sharpsmart can partner with you in reducing risk exposure and increasing sharps injury awareness in your facility:
Clinical waste bins do not have to be ugly!
Bins that look nice, and clean, and are clinically designed for a clinical environment? It’s not rocket science (well, we don't think it is!)
When considering the design of a sharps container or clinical waste bin, we asked ourselves the question "if we or our loved ones were in an hospital room – what would we think would be an acceptable safety standard?" The answer was clean, clinical, germ-free, hygienic. We’ve all been in clinical environments where clinical waste bins do not live up to this image, and at Sharpsmart we are passionate about changing this! Involving clinicians in our design process and engaging clinical feedback during trials, Sharpsmart's range of clinical waste containers cater for all healthcare wastestreams and have been peer reviewed in international medical journals for achieving unprecedented clinical outcomes. Through containers, service and healthcare-purposed processes, we are focused on clinical safety.
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.
Fast, Effective Outbreak Containment
In the process of vacuum-sealing, the Vacsmart removes and filters odours, bacteria, and excess volumes of clinical, offensive and other soft waste streams by up to 80%
Contained within a hermetically sealed air-tight bag, cross-contamination risk of infectious waste is eliminated and outbreaks of large-scale viruses, such as norovirus and swine flu can be contained. For outbreak containment, the Vacsmart system stands on its own in its ability to hermetically contain waste. Originally designed for the nursing home industry in mainland Europe where odours and spillages compromised the staff and patient environment, the system is engineer-designed to ensure safety mechanisms alert staff when active carbon or sterile filters require changing.
