Regulated Waste Survey - Deadline Extended to April 15

Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

The NYSDOH has issued the following advisory extending the deadline for the Regulated Waste survey:

Dear Colleague:
Due to the fact that many laboratories are in need of assistance to complete the Regulated Medical Waste Program Survey, we are extending the length of time for completing the survey for another two weeks for those labs that operate in NYS.

It is important to note that laboratories operating out of NYS need not respond to the survey.

The new due date for the survey will be close of business, Friday, April 15, 2016.

The survey is an electronic survey, and is located in the HERDS application on the Health Commerce System (HCS). We have attached some basic instructions that should be of assistance.  Download Here

We are very grateful for all the effort you have made in trying to respond to the survey, and we will continue to respond to requests for assistance and work with you. Your effort has been tremendous and the data you are providing will be extremely helpful to our programmatic efforts.
