Sergeant Shredder Mobile Shredding Options

At Sergeant Shredder we understand that every medical and dental office has its own requirements to meet regulations. Let us help you be prepared in the event of an HIPAA audit.

  1. One-Time Shredding – perfect for large projects like:
    • Annual purging of old patient files
    • Converting to electronic medical records
    • Disposing of X-rays, microfiche, hard drives or other electronic media
  2. Regularly Scheduled Shredding – use our complimentary secure document bins to store unwanted materials in between regularly scheduled shredding visits.

With either option, you can receive a Certificate of Destruction for your HIPAA compliance records. Knowing who has access to your patients’ sensitive documents is a critical security issue for your medical or dental practice, even after they are destroyed. Our vetted shredding technicians come to you so you know your items are completely and securely destroyed.

Disposal of protected health information doesn’t have to be a scary thing. We have been guiding clients throughout Southern California on the best methods for destroying sensitive information while meeting guidelines and federal laws, such as shredding for HIPAA. We have a great reputation within the health community, helping keeping sensitive patient information safe through secure shredding.
