Proper Destruction is the Law
Is a single X-ray worth $50,000? That’s the amount that just one improperly disposed of X-ray could cost your business.
Films from X-rays and MRIs are classified as protected health information under HIPAA, so failure to destroy them properly could result in fines of up to $50,000 per film. The jackets that are used to store films must also be completely destroyed to comply fully with the law.
The costs of noncompliance can be devastating, which is why many medical facilities and practices leave X-ray destruction to the experts here at Land Shark Shredding.
