Disposing and handling of biomedical waste are one of the most challenging aspects of waste management activities. Several reports are published every year about the deaths related to biomedical waste, penalties imposed on hospitals for poor handling of biomedical waste, and whatnot. Is there a way to automate the entire process? There is, with the help of solid waste management software.
If the disposal of biomedical waste is not done carefully, it can lead to contamination and possibly the death of other people. You don’t want a Resident Evil kind of situation, do you?
Why Should You Care?
Most businesses, and maybe you, have this question in their mind, “Why should I care?” And your scepticism is justifiable in your eyes. So, let us try to understand why you should care about it.
Imagine that you decided to take a stroll one evening in your neighbourhood. You lost track of time and before you know, it is dark. You rush to get home. There is this dark alley that you take and cut your time by half. In your mindless state to run back home, you didn’t notice the used syringe lying. You stepped on it and the needle somehow pierced through your shoes.
You did not care but after a few days fall ill. The doctors diagnose you with HIV-AIDS. But that is not possible, you think to yourself. And then it hit you. Yes, the syringe!
That is why management, treatment, and disposal of biomedical waste are necessary.
How Does the Process work?
There are standard defined practices and ways of disposing of the biomedical waste. The software is integrated with all these standard guidelines. For example, human anatomical waste like tissues & organs should be incinerated.
Solid waste management software is fed all the standard practices of treatment and disposal. This system is synced with your inventory to keep a check on how many items are present, how many were used, and how many were disposed of as per standard.
Depending on the customer needs, customisation for the software to include RFID tracking and geo-tracking of collection vehicles is also a way to make the system more easily trackable and smooth. This is done using the geo tracking of solid waste.
Additional Feature Businesses Are Using
Some businesses prefer to use an end to end process management. So, not only they employ the system to track disposal in their premise but also want to know where it landed up and how exactly the treatment was done.
The solid waste management software functionality is particularly useful for businesses who opt for off-site disposal of their biomedical waste.
The Moral of the Story?
The handling and management of biomedical is an expensive affair but a necessity. Therefore, several businesses use a software system to automate the process. You, like hundreds of other businesses, can also adopt the system in your business to take the load off your chest and the sword over your head.
