B & D Associates warns those with X ray Film Recycling about Theft

In September of this year, two men walked into three Philadelphia area hospitals, said they were there to pick up old Xray films for disposal and calmly walked out with barrels of old film.
But the two men were not from the silver recycling company that normally picked up old X-rays for silver recycling.  “Given the tough economy and high silver prices, it’s no wonder that X ray Film Recycling thefts are on the rise across the country,“ said Andrew Thornton of B & D Associates.

One component of the emulsion on an X-ray Film is silver. During the silver recycling process, the silver is released from the emulsion. As a result, thieves and con artists across the country are beginning to steal X ray film for recycling at hospitals, veterinary offices and other places where X ray film is used.
“As a silver recycling company, we have a HIPAA compliant process for safely removing, transporting, and storing X ray film prior to recycling the film, extracting Silver, and destroying the film,” Thornton explained. ”It’s important for hospitals and other enterprises working with X ray film to have processes in place that keep X ray films safe from thievery and also protect patient confidentiality.”
The same holds true with the value of silver flake.  If you treat your own fixer on-site for discharge, be aware of who has access to your electrolytic silver flake.

To keep film safe from theft, store archived X rays and old Xray Film slated for silver recycling under lock and key.  Limit access to the locked storage area to those with direct responsibility for contacting the contracted silver recycling firm. When film is scheduled for removal by the silver recycling company, the employee who calls to schedule the pickup should always be the one to give the recycler access.

When choosing a vendor for x ray film recycling make sure they are a licensed X ray Film Recycling Facility. Use Google Maps satelite imaging to determine if the address of the company that you are considering is an actual commercial building or a residence.  Search the vendor for any violations they may have had.  Always check for references and copies of their insurance.

Hospital X ray Film Recycling: Purging, Consolidating and Moving

If your medical business’s storage space is full of boxes of old x ray’s, it is time to call B & D Associates. We have been recycling x ray film from hospitals, clinics, and individual practices since 1974.  B&D Associates staff will come in and conduct purging and consolidation to your specifications.  We will purge any x ray films for recycling that are no longer required to be stored and consolidate what is left to minimize your square footage to increase your bottom line.  This will also potentially free space to meet other needs. Some facilities also use this revenue to purchase or update equipment.

B & D Associates will enter into a BAA (business associate agreement) to ensure HIPAA compliance when destroying your files or x rays.  Our trained staff comes in and purges, consolidates, and removes your files of x ray film for recycling to meet your space-saving objective.  It is then transported back to our licensed, secure x ray film recycling facility.  The x ray film is separated from the reports and jackets.  The reports and jackets are then shredded and a Certificate of Destruction is issued.  The x ray film is shredded then washed in an enzyme bath to remove the emulsion containing the silver.  The sludge is then put through a centrifuge to remove as much fluid as possible. The solids are then refined to solid pure silver.  Once our your old x-ray film has been recycled, we send you a check for the price of the recovered silver and a Certificate of Destruction proving that your files are destroyed.

We are licensed to destroy both x-ray film and medical records; let us help you reclaim your storage space!

B & D Associates, Inc. has been providing the highest returns and the best service x ray film recycling for almost 40 years.  You do not stay in business for that long except by being the best.  Check us out at WWW.SAFESILVERRECOVERY.COM
