Medical Waste Collection | Durham, North Carolina
Durham, North Carolina is a city known for it’s higher institutes of education, in particular Duke University. Durham is full of culture, diversity and historic value.
The primary medical center is Duke University Hospital. DUH is nationally ranked as one of the best hospitals in the United States. Go Green Solutions, LLC is thankful for medical centers such as these because they provide work for the people in the area! All of the medical facilities in the area produce medical waste. This is where Go Green Solutions, LLC comes in! We can help these facilities not only provide state approved medical waste pick up, but also help the companies to safe and compliant.
Go Green Solutions, LLC is blessed to service the Durham area; ensuring that the local area as well as the residents are taken care of in the best way possible. Many are unaware that medical waste cannot just be disposed of in their regular trash. Our goal here at Go Green Solutions, LLC is to provide that awareness. Medical waste has infectious pathogens and viruses that can be easily spread if it were to come in contact with a human.
Included in medical waste would be for example: sharps, soaked gauze, human tissue, syringes, patient IV’s, etc. Due to the fact that Blood Borne Pathogens (BBP) are always present on the above items, it is crucial to properly dispose of them immediately after use. This is what helps prevent and stop the spread of infectious diseases and prevent contamination of sterile environments.
According to the CDC HAI Data: Found in the below link https://www.cdc.gov/hai/data/index.html?CDC_AA_refVal=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fhai%2Fsurveillance%2Findex.html
Although significant progress has been made in preventing some healthcare-associated infection types, there is much more work to be done. On any given day, about one in 31 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection.
CDC publishes data reports to help track progress and target areas that need assistance. The data come from two complementary HAI surveillance systems, the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) and the Emerging Infections Program Healthcare-Associated Infections – Community Interface (EIP HAIC).
Go Green Solutions, LLC makes it our priority to help reduce these risks by providing necessary OSHA Compliance Training to our customers in Durham, NC.
NC's First Double Hand Replacement | Durham, North Carolina
It was Easter Sunday in 2017 when Debra Kelly’s cold symptoms turned very serious. According to an article on Duke University Hospital’s Blog : Debra ended up with a strep A infection that put her on life support. Her organs were failing and she was going in and out of cardiac arrest. A rare deadly infection left doctors with no choice but to amputate Kelly’s arms and legs.
After amputation she was able to return home but in January 2018 she ended up with lingering concerns in her left leg. That brought her to Duke. Months later she learned about Duke’s hand transplant program. After approval, she spent two months on the transplant list when a donor was found.
Today Kelly is learning how to use her new hands. She’s doing things once thought impossible, like feeding herself and picking things up. She hopes to learn how to do more things on her own, that she loved before amputation.
