Healthcare Waste audit Software you can depend on :-

Our Healthcare waste management software has been developed to assist with the monitoring and management of waste across the healthcare sector.

The areas and topics included in the audit tools are based on requirements for HTM 07-01 including waste segregation, waste streams and waste pre-acceptance audits carried out by waste management teams across the National Health Service (NHS) .

"I contacted Medical Audits as I needed a software system to help me manage all the waste management audits and pre-acceptance waste audits across our whole Trust.

They showed me some options within my budget and I have to say, I'm delighted with the software. It’s easy to use, works with and without Wi-Fi and is exactly what I need to make the audit process more streamlined.

I've been using it a few months now and the detailed reports I am sending out are getting very positive feedback from both Trust staff and our clients. We are now extending use of the software across other areas of Soft FM including Cleaning"

Sam Yates, Waste Manager Birmingham Community Services NHS FT

The Healthcare waste audit software is designed to:

Ensure the safe management of waste across all areas of healthcare including hospitals, out-patient departments, residential care properties, hospital admin buildings and more

Assess the level of compliance with processes in place for safe management of waste

The NHS waste management audit software enables fast, efficient data collection on compliance and non-compliances associated with:

  • Waste segregation
  • Waste bins and bags
  • Sharps containers
  • Pre acceptance audits
  • Training of healthcare staff in how to manage waste safely

Why is carrying out waste management audits necessary in healthcare settings?

Any organisation that produces healthcare waste is required to conduct a waste audit , at least annually to meet their statutory obligations.

Pre- acceptance audits are essential as if not completed, your waste contractor will not be permitted to legally accept your waste.

Duty of Care waste audits are also essential so you can be assured that you and your staff are managing all waste streams in accordance with relevant regulations and guidance.
