According to 64E-16.003(2) Florida Department of Health (FDOH), “Each biomedical waste facility shall implement a written operating plan to manage biomedical waste, in accordance with this chapter.”
Biomed realizes that when the DOH Inspector “shows up” at your facility for their annual inspection, your office will probably be busy. We will develop and devise your manual to contain ALL the information that must be made available to the inspector.
You no longer have to run around looking for all the paperwork that the inspector requests.
All you have to do is hand the inspector your Biomedical Waste manual/binder which will contain all the necessary information that the inspector will require in order to make the inspection process painless and easy.
Your manual will be site-specific and customized for your facility and it will include procedures and information specific to your specialty.
- Training records
- Written Plan
- DOH regulations
What is the process for completing the manuals?
- You will need to complete and return the questionnaire or schedule an appointment to receive assistance to complete the questionnaire (Time varies depending on the size of the facility)
- Develop your manual - this may take approximately 1-7 days after Biomed receives the completed questionnaire
- Manuals are delivered and key areas of the manuals are highlighted and discussed with the administrator or designated personnel
- Schedule a phone session with the administrator or designated personnel to highlight and discuss key areas of the manual
We have had our manuals for 12 years, do they need to be updated?
You should UPDATE your Plan:
- If your manual is over 10 years old
- When rules and regulations change
- If you have new employees
- If you change your address
- If you change your business name
