X-ray Film DisposalA Walsh Imaging provides medical and veterinary facilities throughout New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania with professional x-ray film disposal. The light sensitive properties of silver compounds are the key to most photographic processes, and the basis of most of the waste produced by them. Like the compounds of many other heavy metals, they are highly toxic, and classified as special wastes by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The ever increasing demand for environmental concerns have further stressed the requirements for proper x-ray film disposal, x-ray film recycling and the waste produced by them. Even x-ray paper jackets and inserts can be cross shredded and turned into a fine pulp for re-use. Due to the sensitivity of patient records, x-ray film disposal must be handled according to regulations set forth by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Under HIPAA, you share in the responsibility for patient records, including x-ray film disposal, even after they leave your facility. Besides assurances of continued patient confidentiality, you should be able to determine that these x-ray films are destroyed in an environmentally sound manner. Your selection of an outside vendor is a matter of trust and serious obligation - an obligation that A Walsh Imaging, certified in hauling and disposal, takes seriously as we strive to meet or exceed government standards.
