    Does anybody do shredding in house with an office shredder?

    Yes. As long as your shredder meets certain specifications to ensure proper document destruction you can totally just shred in-office.

    I have an older population ave age 70. 10% I email or text results to the rest get snail mail reports of many types; xray,labs, consultation communications about them etc.

    Shredders in every exam room and place you review records is my routine, they never pile up and never go stay lingering about....I have found they all last 2-3 yrs before the motor dies. It’s a rhythm of reviewing labs and jotting notes on the actual paper that I then have office staff scan to their record and post I love, no typing letters and no summary of results I give them the raw details. Efficient and fast,

    Depends on how much you shred.  I used to kill a shredder a year.  Each time I replaced the dead one, I bought a more heavy-duty model.  Didn't make a difference – in a year (or less), it was broken.    Not to mention the mess it made when emptied.  So I gave up and started having a shredding service come in when I'd accumulated enough shredding to make it worthwhile.   I kept one in the office for highly sensitive documents, but didn't use it much.
