How To Prepare Your Medical Documents For Services?
Medical documents and X-rays have patients’ data that is protected by HIPAA. These documents must be handled securely to avoid falling in the wrong hands. One easy way to do this is to shred them when you don’t need a copy anymore. Medical Shredding Companies can help you with this, but sometimes it’s more practical to buy your own shredder and deal with the disposal yourself. Here are the steps required:
1) Prepare a large enough stack of documents so they can all fit in the shredder without having overlapping edges that keep sticking out from the mouth of the machine or will jam it up. This also means that if you find any important information on a particular document, just skip over it and go on to the next one.
2) Turn on the shredder and hold it over a large enough trash can so the disposal is easy. In case there’s a paper jam, you won’t make a mess because if any tiny pieces of paper are stuck in between two pages, all you have to do is carefully take them out from the sides. If you rip or tear them up by pulling too hard, no problem – just continue onto the next one until they’re all shredded.
3) Once your stack is finished being shredded, empty your trash can into an exterior container instead of directly into a wastebasket that eventually gets emptied into waste bins inside your home. This reduces the chances that someone will go through household garbage to find medical documents with potentially sensitive information still attached to them.
Also, another way to use Medical Shredding Companies is to drop off a large enough box of your documents at their office so they have the contents brought out to a shredder machine and turned into tiny pieces. You can then collect it all back inside an empty box you brought along with you, or switch it for another empty one for them to reuse during the next batch of Medical Shredding. This option is more expensive but very efficient if your need for Medical Shredding Services only comes up every couple of months.
By following these steps, you will remain HIPAA compliant while also protecting yourself from identity theft by ensuring that none of your private information stays in anyone else’s hands except yours. This is a simple task that anyone can do, and Medical Shredding Services are always happy to help.
