Hazardous waste disposal just got smart
When nurses administer chemotherapy treatments to their patients, they should not be putting their health at risk. Disposal of hazardous waste is where the risk occurs.
This is the first hazardous waste disposal service that genuinely puts nurses first. The patented Khemosafe unit prevents you from being exposed to hazardous waste vapors by immediately sealing waste bags to prevent seepage.
The smart unit then weighs all the hazardous waste you collect and that data is safely and securely stored on the Cloud. At the end of the month, the hospital receives a report for the month’s recorded weight.
That way, hospitals know if all the initially collected waste remains captured, or if some of it has escaped as a dangerous vapor that can negatively impact the health of hard-working nurses.
Our smart unit can be leased to any hospital, clinic, inpatient, or out-patient program and it allows each facility to take complete control of its hazardous waste disposal.
Instead of relying on waste companies to report how much waste they have collected, you can take an accurate measurement of all the hazardous waste you are producing.
This doesn’t just ensure more transparency so you can manage costs and ensure you are protecting patients as per The Joint Commission guidelines, it also means data can be analyzed in detail so you can make better decisions going forward.
Intricate algorithms help you track and monitor the waste so you can measure exactly how much you pay per pound of waste disposal and search out the best pricing. You can also use predictive analytics to map future cost savings and environmental protection plans.
In an era of rising healthcare costs, Khemosafe provides cost containment tools to institutions.
Khemosafe’s smart unit can be utilized in any hospital, clinic, or outpatient setting that infuses chemotherapy. It allows each facility to take complete control of how it’s hazardous waste is collected.
There is currently no formal, standardized method for removing cytostatic drugs, which is why at Khemosafe, we’ve decided it’s time to offer a feasible solution.
The problem of nurses and hospital workers’ exposure to hazardous chemicals like those from cytostatic drugs isn’t going away anytime soon. It’s only just now starting to attract a fraction of the attention it deserves, but awareness is growing by the day.
More than 1.7 million new cancer cases are diagnosed each year in the US.
Around 650,000 cancer patients receive chemotherapy every year in an outpatient oncology clinic in the US.
Our patented smart unit is an opportunity to target every medical facility across the country and beyond, providing a safe way to dispose of chemotherapy waste.
At Khemosafe, our mission is to make sure that every nurse, custodial worker, hospital, and clinic employee can feel confident that they are safe in their workplace. We are passionate about our hazardous waste disposal service project, and we won’t stop until everyone who comes into contact with chemotherapy and cytostatic drugs is safe. We’re beginning our mission with the backbone of our healthcare system, our hero nurses and medical staff, and then we plan to develop smaller systems for private and residential use.
