Home Health Organization Medical Waste Disposal and Compliance Solutions

Stericycle provides home health organizations an array of safe and compliant solutions to manage medical waste and compliance requirements.

Stericycle is the trusted partner to home health organizations across Canada

Stericycle enables home healthcare organizations to maintain regulatory compliance by providing medical waste management and compliance solutions that protect people and brands, promote health and well-being, and safeguard the environment.

Home health organizations require empathetic employees and dedicated care providers to focus on delivering a range of healthcare services to patients for an illness, injury, or end of life care within the comfort of their home. While this is not the traditional workplace, these organizations must also maintain a safe and compliant environment for their employees.

We appreciate the important role you play in maintaining the health and well-being of your patients by providing skilled nursing care and overseeing health related issues, whether you are a registered nurse, a personal support worker, or an administrator. We also understand the effort it takes to handle the different medical waste streams, while running an environment where home healthcare employees are up-to-date with regulatory requirements. 

We customize our solutions for your needs, whether you are part of a larger network of home healthcare providers serving patients nationally or a local independent home health organization supporting members of the community. Furthermore, we also offer you the convenience to safely dispose of your biomedical waste as you care for your patients within their homes.

Non-Anatomical Waste

Stericycle Medical Waste Solutions provide home health organizations with the compliant collection, transportation, treatment, and disposal of regulated waste generated from in-home care.

We recommend all non-anatomical waste, including any items saturated with blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM), such as bandages, gauze, or PPE, be disposed of in yellow bags, placed in marked containers and stored for pickup.

Sharps Waste

Stericycle Sharps Solutions provide a range of containers and service options for the disposal of waste generated from infusion therapy, blood tests, or vitamin injections.  

We recommend all sharps waste, such as needles, or other sharps contaminated with blood or tissue, be disposed of in a designated sharps container to reduce needlestick injuries and keep employees safe. 

Confidential Information and Documents

Shred-it®, a Stericycle Solution, provides safe and secure destruction of paperwork generated through serving patients or other administrative tasks that contain patient protected health information or confidential information, such as patient names, addresses, or phone numbers. 

We recommend all confidential information be locked in secure consoles prior to being securely shredded with Shred-it.
