Sharps Terminator Launches Innovative Device to Reduce Sharps Medical Plastic Waste by 93%

FDA-approved medical device enhances safety and sustainability in healthcare

Lubbock, TX, Sept. 7, 2023 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Sharps Terminator, LLC is proud to announce the USA launch of its revolutionary medical device designed to address a pressing issue in healthcare – needle stick injuries and plastic waste. The Sharps Terminator device is a breakthrough solution that significantly reduces sharps plastic waste by up to 93%, leading to cost savings and aiding organizations in their efforts to reduce their carbon footprint and plastic waste in landfills.

Needle stick injuries pose a serious risk to healthcare professionals, with millions of incidents occurring each year. These injuries not only endanger the well-being of medical staff but also increase the potential transmission of bloodborne pathogens. In compliance with the Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act of 2000 and the revised bloodborne pathogens standard, healthcare facilities are continuously seeking safer and more effective solutions to these problems.

The Sharps Terminator device has been designed to help solve these healthcare industry concerns. Weighing only 2.93 lbs and measuring 4.75” wide x 7.25” in length, this compact and portable device is battery-operated and easy to use. It accommodates various needle sizes, including IV and butterfly needles, making it suitable for diverse healthcare environments – from hospitals and clinics to home- based care settings.

Employing state-of-the-art technology, the Sharps Terminator device sterilizes and neutralizes used needles within three seconds at the point of use. This groundbreaking approach ensures safe disposal of medical sharps, effectively mitigating the risks associated with needle stick injuries and contributing to enhanced safety for both healthcare professionals and patients.

One key highlight of the Sharps Terminator device is its substantial cost-saving potential. Facilities using the device have reported reductions of up to 93% in sharps bin and disposal costs. Beyond the direct financial benefits, the device indirectly fosters improved employee morale, retention rates, and workplace safety. By reducing injuries, it contributes to lower medical expenses, reduced sickness- related absences, and diminishes legal fees.

Dr. Dannie Glover, Chief of Staff at Ascension Saint Thomas River Park, wholeheartedly endorses the Sharps Terminator device, remarking: "I support this device because it completely removes the needle. It’s no longer a sharp. Noting the decreased handling of sharps, it is clearly safer than presently used methods. The environmental benefits and cost savings are a nice bonus." In a time when environmental consciousness is paramount, the Sharps Terminator device shines as an emblem of sustainability. Its role in significantly decreasing waste directly contributes to reducing the carbon footprint of healthcare facilities, aligning with global efforts toward a greener future.
