Medical Waste Disposal
Medical waste is one of the most sensitive types of waste, and its disposal needs to be handled with utmost precision and care. Despite this, not a lot of people know how to deal with it and are likely to mishandle it.

 

Well, worry not, because we will cover all the important aspects of medical waste! Let’s dive right in. 

Image

What is Medical Waste?

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) defines biohazardous medical waste as "medical waste that is composed of one or more of the following: Cultures and stocks, Human blood and blood products, Human pathologic wastes, Research animal wastes, and Medical sharps."  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) also considers COVID waste as a level 3 biohazard and needs to be disposed of as medical waste.  Essentially, any item that comes into contact with body fluids is medical waste. Primarily, the term covers solid waste that is the outcome of diagnosis, immunization, and any medical treatment of humans. 

 

Types of Medical Waste

As you would expect, there are many types of medical waste. Medical waste can be in the form of: 

● Personal protective equipment (PPE)

● Wipes or paper towels

● Gloves used in a medical procedure

● Used syringes with and without needles

● Bandages

● Dressings

 

Although this list is helpful in terms of understanding medical waste, it is not exhaustive. What you need to remember is that any kind of waste that comes from medical care is medical waste, and hence should be handled accordingly.

 

Different Ways to Deal with Medical Waste

Back in the day, you could only handle medical waste by collecting it in special, plastic boxes and bags. These boxes and bags were then thrown in normal trash. However, it was quickly realized that disposing medical waste without treating it first resulted in the spread of diseases and viruses. 

 

Depending on the kind of medical waste you are dealing with, the following disposal processes can be used: 

1) Autoclaving

This process involves steam sterilization and focuses on completely destroying the microorganisms.

2) Incineration 

Incineration is a quick, easy, and simple disposal process that is aimed at safely removing microorganisms by burning them.

3) Chemicals 

Chemical disinfection is another waste disposal method. This one is aimed at getting rid of liquid waste.

4) Microwaving 

This process revolves around shredding the waste, mixing it with water, internally heating it to kill all the harmful elements, including microorganisms. 

 

However, in Arizona, when dealing with biohazardous medical waste, it is important to hire an ADEQ licensed medical waste transporter to ensure your waste has been properly treated or disposed of at an approved facility. There are state laws regarding the proper storage, transfer, treatment, and disposal of biohazardous medical waste. A $25,000 fine may be issued by ADEQ to anyone who uses an unlicensed company to remove the waste.  Visit https://azdeq.gov/BioMedWaste for more information and updated lists of transporters or give us a call with any questions.

We also counsel paramedics and first responders—professionals at risk of handling bio-hazardous material—on how to best handle medical waste and limit the risks associated with their work.

Seasonal Depression - Preparation for the Holidays and the Upcoming New Year

Image

Do you feel overcome with a sudden wave of sadness during the holidays? Don’t chalk it up to a case of mere holiday blues: you could be going through seasonal holiday stress and depression.

 

It’s natural for your mood to fluctuate as seasons pass - for example, some people find the colder weather very dreary and are likely to sulk as the temperature drops, whereas others tend to experience a change of mood during the long and hot summer days. The truth is that all of this is a part of being human - and for the most part, you can’t escape these perfectly normal shifts in your behavior. 

 

However, when you are hit by feelings of depression during the holiday season, when everyone else around you is enthusiastically partaking in the festive spirit, you may feel overwhelmed and out of the loop with the world. 

 

It’s time to stop worrying - here are a few tips will help you combat seasonal stress and depression so that you can enjoy the holiday season like you deserve to. 

 

What are the Symptoms of Seasonal Holiday Depression? How do you tell that your feelings are not just "normal" sadness but symptoms of seasonal depression? Looking for the following stress responses may help:

 

1. Feeling sad, hopeless, and pessimistic every day (or nearly every day)

2. Losing interest in things you usually enjoy

3. Feeling lazy or having problems with your sleep routine

4. Changes in your appetite

5. Increased agitation and frustration towards people around you

6. Not being able to concentrate

 

Before we get into the ways you can deal with seasonal holiday stress and depression, let’s look at a few things that may trigger these feelings. 

 

The triggers of seasonal depression during the holidays include, but are not limited to: 

● Fatigue

● Overworking to organize gatherings

● Over-commercialization

● Financial stress

● Physical distance from loved ones

● Unrealistic expectations

● Emotional burnout

● Social exhaustion

 

Any of these can cause you to feel sad, which may lead to stress and depression that feel all-consuming. Even if others don’t seem to be bothered about the things that don’t sit well with you, you should know that your feelings are completely valid!

 

Here are a few tips that can help you cope with holiday depression:

● Be realistic: do not take more responsibilities than you can deal with. 

● Don't feel pressured into communication and interacting if you don't want to. 

● Spread your energy across different holidays instead of saving it for just one day, like Christmas/New Year's Eve. 

● If you feel lonely, seek opportunities to help others.

● Don't drink too much. 

● Indulge in self-care. 

● Don't overspend.

● Establish a strong support network by reaching out to a trusted friend, family member or therapist.

● Remembering that it's okay to not feel okay!

 

Be kind to yourself and remind yourself that although you may be feeling down and out, it's only temporary.  You're going to make it through the holidays and come out of it even stronger. You’ve Got This!

Rodent Droppings - Everything You Need to Know

Image

Finding dried rat feces is the last thing any house owner would wish for. However, how many of us know the exact dangers associated with rat droppings? Yes, that’s right - rodent droppings are not as harmless as you would assume. In fact, if not handled properly, they can very quickly turn into your worst nightmare!

 

If you are dealing with a rodent infestation problem in your home or business and are looking at remediating them, you need to know exactly what you are dealing with and the safety measures you must take. 

 

Identifying Rodent Droppings

The first thing you need to know is how to distinguish between rodent droppings and droppings from other kinds of pest. The most common ones that you are likely to encounter after an infestation are rodent, mice, and cockroach droppings. Remember that cockroach excrement is smaller, and nearly not as harmful as rodent droppings. Therefore, upon inspection, make sure that you are dealing with rodent droppings before you proceed.

 

Rodent Droppings - The Dangers

Rodent droppings are extremely dangerous! They can contaminate food, cause allergic reactions, and even transmit bacteria and diseases in you and your loved ones. They have particles that can enter your nasal passages and result in infection of one sort or the other. Moreover, some rodent species also have Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) associated with them. This means that the droppings, saliva, and urine of such rodents could lead to you contracting the illness. Although it is not a common occurrence, contracting HPS can lead to death if left untreated. 

 

Dealing with Rodent Droppings

We suggest you to not handle rodent droppings at home, especially if you do not have the right protective gear. This is mainly because even the slight disturbance of rodent droppings can cause the HPS virus as well as any other potential diseases to be airborne, making it easier for you to get sick. 

 

Therefore, the best way to deal with rat droppings is to leave it to the professionals! At Bio One, we have just the knowledge and expertise to help clean your house of rodent droppings, without you having to put your health to risk.

Image

Bio-One’s rodent dropping clean-up services specialize in the removal, decontamination and disinfection of animal waste in Tucson Area. Rodents are more than bothersome creatures. Rats, mice, bats and pigeons - common household pests - can transmit viral diseases via unattended urine, feces and saliva. Often, their bacterium is airborne and can affect food and water sources found in homes and businesses. Several diseases can be found in rodent droppings, including leptospirosis, a bacterial disease commonly found in food and water sources; arenavirus, a viral disease that can cause extreme sickness; and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, also a viral disease contracted through contact with rodent droppings.

 

Our technicians can properly remove rodent waste and disinfect areas affected by rats, mice, bats, pigeons, cockroaches and other rodents. Although dry and longstanding, these droppings can still carry bacteria and parasites, especially in badly ventilated areas.

Protect your fur family from canine parvovirus (PARVO)

Image

There is nothing more distressing for a dog owner than to find out that their fur friend has contracted what could potentially be a life-threatening sickness. Unfortunately, PARVO - a deadly form of canine virus - is very common. 

 

PARVO can cause some serious health complications for your beloved pet, which is why you should be taking all possible measures against the chances of your dog contracting it. 

 

In this article, we will take a closer look at what PARVO is, and how you can protect your dogs from it! 

 

What is PARVO?

PARVO is a disease caused in puppies by the canine parvovirus (CPV or CPV2). The reason why PARVO is so threatening is that it is extremely contagious. Not only that, but a dog can contract due to both indirect and direct interaction with an infected dog or any other contaminated object. This means that your puppy is more or less always exposed to the risk of getting parvovirus.

 

For example, something as trivial as a person who has been in contact with an infected dog petting your puppy can lead to your puppy getting the virus. 

 

Parvovirus affects the stomach and small intestines, and this is where the virus does most of the damage. It destroys the cells inside the small intestine. It is also known to disrupt the gut barrier and cause complications in terms of absorption. 

 

Younger puppies are more susceptible to parvovirus - so if your dog is aged six weeks to six months, you need to ensure that they are either vaccinated against parvovirus or are sheltered enough that they have no contact whatsoever with the virus. 

 

Disinfecting Your House to Get Rid of Parvovirus

In order to ensure that your house is a safe space for your pet, you need to make sure that there is not even a single trace of parvovirus around to harm your pet. Fortunately, disinfecting your house to get rid of parvovirus is not very hard. 

 

At Bio-One of Tucson, we have just the right cleaning solutions, equipment, and cleaners to kill parvovirus and ensure that your pet can live healthily in a Parvo-free environment! So, if you want to go the (necessary) extra mile and make sure that your pet is safe at home, you should get in touch with us today.

Disinfecting your home or business from COVID-19

Earlier this week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) moved Pima County’s COVID-19 status from substantial to high community transmission. We're seeing infections, hospitalizations, and deaths due to the Delta variant, all on the rise. As a community, we should do everything we can to prevent the spread to keep our coworkers, our families, and our community safe.

Bed Bugs - Dangers And The Importance Of Remediating

Image

Bed bugs are parasitic insects and are known for biting the exposed skin of sleeping humans as well as animals to feed on their blood.  They are wingless, reddish brown, and small.  Bed bugs usually reside in bed parts such as mattresses and objects near beds like picture frames and folded areas of furniture.  Having a serious bed bug infestations may affect your mental and physical health.

 

Don’t let their small size fool you!  Bed bugs may cause highly allergic reactions to your body if you do not take action to remediate them quickly and successfully.  Bed bugs may also cause secondary infections of the skin due to the reaction of their bite. Some skin infections caused by bed bugs may include lymphangitis, impetigo and ecthyma and mental health problems include anxiety may also accompany a bed bug infestation. Remediation in any case plays a key role to avoid health related issues. 

 

Professional Thermal Bedbug Remediation

Image

Bio-One exterminates bed bugs using a heat extermination process. The infested space and surrounding walls are heated to a temperature above 125°F, killing all bed bugs and their eggs. No pesticides or other chemicals whatsoever will be used at any time.

 

Not only have pesticides become ineffective as bed bugs have developed resistance, but pesticides do not work without direct contact on insects. Compare this to heat: Bed bugs cannot become resistant to it, and heat waves get everywhere. Bio-One uses specialized equipment that is customized to the needs of each space. Our heating tools are designed specifically to spread, control, and monitor heat - getting it into hard-to-reach spaces inside walls and mattresses.

 

Thermal remediation is our preferred method because:

• Odor free

• Time sensitive and convenient, allowing for only one day of treatment

• Requires less preparation

 

How heat affects insects:

• 95–107.6°F Lower survival; prolonged developmental time; reduced egg production; insects seek cooler environment

• 107.7–113°F Death in less than a day

• 114–122°F Death in less than an hour, eggs become non-viable  

• 143.6°F Death in less than a minute

Monsoon Season and Mold

Image

Monsoon season is bliss and brings about a much needed break from the scorching sun and the sweltering heat. However, along with monsoon comes humidity, which gives birth to mold and mildew that can damage your walls, clothes, and even furniture. So, how can you prevent mold growth and keep the moisture at bay? Let's find out. 

 

To combat mold growth, the very first thing you need to do is get rid of moisture from your home. Here are some tips to help you out: 

● Buy a dehumidifier to remove humidity from the room

● Make sure your room gets sufficient sunlight throughout the day  

● Clean water condensation as soon as you spot it

● Sprinkle baking soda on surfaces covered with moisture

● Wipe down your furniture using a dry towel or cloth

● Open the windows and doors to allow airflow and ventilation 

Once you take measures for eliminating moisture, the next step is to get rid of the mold in your house and stop its growth. Here's how you can do that. 

 

Some common places where you can find mold growth are under your kitchen sink, walls, furniture placed next to the walls, behind the toilet, on the bathroom walls, near the washing machine, and other areas where water or water condensation is present. Here are some tips to prevent mold growth and ensure a safe environment indoors.

● Identify the area where mold growth is usually present

● Immediately dry the wet areas of your home and ensure proper ventilation 

● If there are any leaking pipes or seepage issues, get them fixed right away

● Move all your furniture away from the walls where the seepage occurs

● Avoid keeping any damp items lying around in your house, including clothes and furniture pieces

● Dry damp clothes or furniture pieces before you bring them into your home

● Opt for a mold removal service and frequent the use of products that help prevent mold growth. 

 

As fun as the monsoon season is, it can instantly turn into a nuisance if you're not careful. Household mold is a very frequent issue for this weather, especially if you have an old house with seepage and pipeline issues. It is essential that you follow the tips above and identify the problematic places of your home to prevent mold growth. You can even rely on a good mold removal company to nip the problem in the bud and ensure a dry, mold-free house in the monsoon season!

Bio-One technicians can quickly stop and remove the fungus that occurs naturally in areas subjected to humidity, condensation, water leaks and insufficient ventilation. Hiring a professional mold removal company is critical as inadequate removal, remediation and treatment of mold spores can lead to health risks that include respiratory complications, skin irritation and severe allergic reactions.

 

Our Bio-One team properly contains areas infested with mold and discards any household or business items that have been highly contaminated, whether that entails tearing out and reconstructing areas or less thorough mold removal procedures. The remediation may include minor or major repairs, dependent on the level of mold damage.

 

Bio-One crews are available 24/7 and provide mold remediation services and other cleanup services for properties such as residential homes, vehicles, communities, and businesses. If prevention fails, Bio-One can be there to remediate the mold in a safe and contained way to prevent the spores from travelling to other areas of the home.
