Stericycle

Stericycle began in 1989, and has become a leading provider of regulated medical waste management services in North America, the UK, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Ireland, Romania, Portugal, Spain and Japan. As medical waste regulations were adopted to protect the public, we saw the opportunity to manage medical waste for a wide variety of healthcare customers far more efficiently than they could on their own – and in compliance with local regulations. Moreover, we developed a patented treatment process that is safe, clean and reduces the volume of medical waste in landfills. Stericycle’s core purpose is to help customers fulfill their promise by providing solutions that protect people and brands, promote health and safeguard the environment.

Rx Waste Compliance Service
We recognize that healthcare facilities are unsure about the proper disposal of pharmaceuticals. Stericycle’s Rx Waste Compliance Service assures that you are compliant with The Joint Commission Standards as well as EPA and DOT regulations. The Rx Waste Compliance Service is a simple five-step process that includes

1. Rx Waste Identification and Characterization
2. Staff Training and Education
3. Implementation
4. Transport and Disposal of Rx Waste
5. After Care

Pharmaceutical Formulary Characterization

Stericycle conducts an initial waste characterization to determine the appropriate designation for your wastes. As the leading company in processing pharmaceutical returns and recalls, Stericycle has unique capabilities in pharmaceutical characterization of your formulary. Our proprietary database profiles more than 450,000 National Drug Code (NDC) numbers, and our waste characterization includes a review of drugs identified by:
- EPA (40 CFR §262.11 and 261.3)
- DOT (49 CFR § 173)
- National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
- State regulations

Once the initial characterization is complete, we’ll implement a process to update your hospital’s waste characterization on an ongoing basis as new drugs are added to your formulary.

Staff Training and Education
Stericycle provides extensive training throughout the hospital as required by EPA and DOT to ensure compliance with the pharmaceutical waste service both during the implementation and beyond.

Implementation Training
For program rollout, a team of Healthcare Compliance Specialists will be on site to provide training to each department, specific to the needs of that department, in a unit to unit and classroom setting. To support ongoing training for part-time staff, employees on vacation, new hires, ect., Stericycle offers an extensive Train the Trainer program with supporting documents, posters, CD’s and other tools to reinforce the training message.
Trainings include:
- Pharmacy Training
- Environmental Services Training
- Train the Trainer Sessions
- Unit to Unit Nursing Training

Transport & Disposal
Stericycle transports filled boxes and drums of pharmaceutical waste to the appropriate destruction facility. Non-RCRA pharmaceutical waste is transported to an incinerator that is permitted for non-RCRA pharmaceutical waste. RCRA Rx waste is transported to a RCRA waste incinerator.
When outsourcing your pharmaceutical waste handling, you need to be confident that your vendor will meet or exceed your hospital’s risk management standards as well as all governmental regulations. The Stericycle transportation vehicles that service your facility must pass routine safety inspections. They always have the appropriate licensure, permits, and insurance; and documentation is always readily available to you. Stericycle ensures the highest levels of compliance, and the least amount of risk for your hospital.

After Care
Upon completion of service installation, our Professional Service group of Healthcare Compliance Specialists will perform on-going follow-up surveys of your facility to maintain compliance with EPA (RCRA) and DOT regulations. Additionally, the follow-up on-site surveys will assist you as you seek to be Joint Commission compliant, and provide a blueprint and documentation of your progress in becoming compliant

CsRx Waste Compliance Service
For most hospitals, capturing controlled substance’ waste is a challenging process that poses a high risk of diversion if not done properly. Pharmacy Directors and other health facility professionals are now responsible for ensuring that leftover or unused drugs and drug waste are not taken or used by anyone other than the intended patient. This has become increasingly difficult due to the easy access and the inventive ways some abusers have found to obtain controlled substances for personal use.

According to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, approximately 15% of health care professionals struggle with drug dependence at some point in their careers. Workers who abuse controlled substances while at the hospital will have impaired judgement and skills, further increasing the risk that their actions could have an adverse effect on patients.

We have developed a Controlled Substance Waste program, the CsRx System, for hospitals to enhance their existing security procedures to safely dispose of controlled substance in a safe and efficient manner and help prevent diversion.

Denature & Deterrent
Each Stericycle CsRx container will contain a pre-loaded deactivating agent-deterrent, which will require water be added to activate. Once the deactivating agent-deterrent has been activated, the containers are ready for use. The deactivating agent permanently alters the substance’s chemical condition rendering the substance unavailable and unusable; including pills, patches, tablets and IV solutions. The deactivating agent also works as a precautionary measure deterring the improbable occurrence of someone attempting to ingest the liquid.

Disposal
The CsRx System includes a pre-paid shipping box for final disposal of full containers. The closing security measure includes a fast-acting solidifier for each container to solidify the liquid prior to shipment. All controlled substance waste will be incinerated at a permitted Stericycle facility.

CsRx Full Service System Offering:
*Provides staff training
*Relieves staff from monitoring and exchanging containers
*Independent company help to ensure hospital compliance with current and future regulations
*Keeps controlled substance from entering water system
*Built in security to ensure low potential for diversion
*Flat-monthly fee

Summary of Benefits
Disposing of controlled-substance waste can be problematic for both consumers and the healthcare industry. It must be performed in a manner that prevents diversion of controlled substances and meets DEA regulations.

The DEA regulations can be confusing and if controlled-substances disposal is not handled correctly, the risk of fines and other DEA corrective action can come into play. Stericycle now has safe and secure methods for hospitals to securely dispose of controlled-substance waste in a compliant manner.

The system is built on three key components: a deactivating and deterring agent, a secure container with wall brackets, and a method for safely disposing of the waste.

Stericycle CsRx controlled-substance waste diversion prevention service can help you safely and securely dispose of controlled-substance waste. We’ve made it simple, safer and more cost effective than any other option available.
