(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 30, 2012 ) Boca Raton, FL --- While federal and state law demands that medical facilities keep X-rays on file for a minimum of 5 years, (some states require longer) it is essential for Hospitals and Imaging facilities to dispose of X-rays appropriately. According to the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act of 1996, privacy issues prohibit X-rays from being thrown in the trash. By law, all films must be completely destroyed erasing all identifiable information. X-Ray Recycling Solutions (XRS) is there to be sure that you rid your films properly, while also providing you with a little extra incentive to purge them in a greener fashion.
Although technological advancement in the imaging industry has created the ability to shift from film to digital format, many facilities are still maintaining several years of X-rays that require disposal. It is XRSs mission to assist as many facilities as possible to reduce their need for storage and to save them thousands of dollars in the process. By using XRS, not only will you be helping the environment, but your support will help create more jobs during these difficult economic times. XRS has developed a national presence with offices in NC, FL, and CA.
To save you even more time and money during this process, XRS is there to provide all of the labor necessary for your purge at no cost to you! You simply give XRS your criteria for the purge and their employees do all of the work. Most purges take only a few days and can be coordinated with your Imaging Department and Materials Management in order to make the process as non-disruptive as possible.
With XRS, you will no longer have to allocate facility resources and time to purge your archived files. Your employees will no longer be exposed to a Workers Compensation related injury while performing a labor intensive purge. Your facility will no longer have to pay for shredding fees once the films are separated from the jackets. It also may free up a large amount of storage space that could be converted for other more useful purposes.
To enhance the solution even further, XRS provides a generous reimbursement for the X-rays that you recycle with their company. Silver market pricing will affect the reimbursement rates on a daily basis. Their reimbursements are based on the scope of the purge as well as logistical costs. All of their clients receive this service at no cost and the reimbursement will be based on the amount of film recovered.
