OR and Hospital Benefits
The average hospital operating room generates between 20% -30% of a hospital’s overall waste. Much of the waste in the OR is disposed of as medical waste, which costs 10 to 15 times more in disposal fees than regular waste.
For most hospitals, the benefits of “going green” in the operating room are considerable: reductions in energy and water use, a reduction in staff exposure to toxic chemicals, increased patient and staff safety and a much-reduced impact on the environment.
