2 Texas abortion clinics fined for fetus disposal – San Antonio Express-News.
It would probably help if Legitimate health care facilities understood how their medical waste disposal service operates.
Stericycle, based in Illinois, is in hot water for improper disposal of human fetuses killed at a pair of Texas abortion clinics.
It seems that there was no problem with Stericycle’s steam disinfection method, but in Texas, the medical “waste” (containing little corpses in various states of dismemberment) is supposed to be buried……. NOT thrown in a municipal landfill.
Stericycle has been fined 42,612 for failure to comply with the regulations.
Whole Woman’s Health Clinics in Austin and McAllen are paying up also, a total of about $40,000 between them. They’re placing the blame on Stericycle of course.
Take home information: Pharmer knows that a LOT of hospitals and clinics employ Stericycle to dispose of their medical waste. People who have miscarriages might want to bear this in mind, if respectful treatment of the body is a concern.
