MOD’s Waste Carts Meet CDC Guidance for Transporting Contaminated Textiles
ASHTABULA, Ohio — Regulated medical waste carts from Meese Orbitron Dunne Co. (MOD), meet U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for transporting hospital linens and other textiles that may be contaminated with the Ebola virus. As specified in the CDC’s “Interim Guidance for Environmental Infection Control in Hospitals for Ebola Virus,” the company’s Poly-Trux® 70P and 72P Biohazard carts provide rigid, leak-proof containment for bagged medical waste inside a durable, plastic design that may be locked to prevent access. The laundry carts are rotationally molded in a single, continuous piece from 100% waterproof, chemical-resistant polyethylene and can handle repeated cleaning in automated cart washers and/or with a variety of chemical cleaning agents.
The 70P and 72P regulated healthcare waste carts come in a bright, orange color with orange and black warning placards riveted to the front and back to alert staffers to the presence of potentially contaminated laundry. A lockable, rotomolded roof and door, vinyl cart covers, custom colors, and permanently molded-in signs and tracking numbers are among the options available.
