Safe and secure clinical waste disposal

Identity theft and data security is one of the most prevalent concerns in every industry, but especially in healthcare. Doctors and medical staff have a stringent ethical and legal duty to protect the private records of their patients, and any breach of confidential medical records not only has a harmful personal impact the victim, but also carries criminal prosecution and/or civil penalties for medical practices neglecting privacy protocols.

The 2014 amendment to the Australian Privacy Act introduced a set of 13 harmonised privacy principles which stipulate stringent guidelines for both individuals and public/private organisations in respect to data privacy. Cleanaway has many years of experience working with hospitals, private medical practices and medical centres, dealing with absolute confidential medical records destruction in compliance with state regulations.
