Greener ORs: Keys to making the business case

OR Manager, Vol. 28 No. 5, May 2012

Perioperative staff and managers face a variety of pressures: improving processes, enhancing patient outcomes, documenting savings, meeting regulations, and more, all in a time of tighter budgets. With so much to balance, it can be difficult to consider (much less sell to upper management) the idea of greening the operating room. That’s especially true because of perceptions that green programs and products cost more. But there is evidence that environmental best practices in the OR can reduce costs, protect staff safety, and even enhance patient and staff health.
