MERI’s Free Nursing Home Compliance Review helps facilities see if they are properly disposing of their infectious and hazardous waste. With additional enforcement on proper infectious and hazardous waste disposal, nursing home compliance is critical.
If a DNR inspector came your nursing home today, would it pass with flying colors?
Skilled Nursing Administrators, Environmental Services and Compliance Officers take note. EPA rules and enforcement means it’s time for you to check if your facility is compliant. Compliance is important when it comes to handling and disposing pharmaceutical and medical waste. MERI’s free nursing home compliance review helps you quickly see if you are handling your biohazard and hazardous waste correctly.
From previous reviews we’ve done, we’ve noticed many skilled nursing facilities are in non-compliance, especially when dealing with their pharmaceuticals. This may be worrying for your nursing facility for three reasons if you are currently out of compliance because:
- You could face thousands of dollars in fines occur
- Your facility may inadvertently be creating an unhealthy workplace, and
- Your staffers could be unnecessarily polluting our water stream
FREE NURSING HOME COMPLIANCE REVIEW
MERI (short for Madison Environmental Resourcing Inc.) is currently offering a FREE Nursing Home Compliance REVIEW for Midwestern Nursing Homes to help flag any potential compliance issues.
Our quick, 10-question survey can help you determine if your infectious, hazardous, pharmaceutical and universal wastes are being properly handled. We’ll also talk to you about how you document every step of your waste disposal process, from storage to disposal, or from cradle to grave. In addition, we’ll review how important it is to be able to quickly access your manifests.
Click here to email us with a time that works best for you to conduct the survey, or or give Lisa, Jim or Zac a call at 608-257-7652.
After the 20-minute conversation, we’ll review your answers and pull together a report with our findings shortly after. MERI will note where you may currently be out of compliance. And, we’ll discuss issues that may put you at greater risk of fine. Our goal of doing this is to help you get these issues fixed before an inspector shows up at your door. Because, no one wants a list of violations that could quickly add up to more $27,500 per violation/per day.
Thanks to our help, Nursing and assisted living facilities have been able to stay on top of changing regulations for more than 30 years. MERI understands your world. As a not-for-profit, we know how important it is to be compliant and to keep your costs low. After all, our mission is for you to apply your medical waste savings to what’s truly important. Focusing your additional resources on those for whom you are caring for.
