As a full service partner, Daniels Health manages every aspect of COVID-19 vaccine collection and disposal, from the provision of the industry's safest containment system through to the compliant collection, transport and waste treatment of bulk vaccines and contaminated sharps.

"Protects our staff, our patients..."

I could not have asked for a better transition to a product. The Daniels Sharpsmart collector allows us to protect our staff, our patients and our visitors as well as our environment.

"No complaints"

Since the changeover to Sharpsmart, we have seen a major reduction in sharps injuries. The Daniels container has a built in 3/4 full feature that prevents overfilling and is completely secure. The container is much stronger and thicker than disposables and you don't have to assemble them. I used to get complaints daily from various departments about our old system, I can honestly say I can't recall a single complaint about Daniels containers.

"No Cleaning of Cabinets..."

The staff all love the ease of use with the containers. The EVS staff love the fact that they are single pieces and the lack of an outer cabinet like other systems that needs to be cleaned regularly.
