  • CM14F7-Greening the Labs: Optimizing Environmental Performance in Hospital Laboratories

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    Recorded on 06/05/2014 - This session explores the unique issues involved when taking what we have learned from the successful Greening the OR® Initiative to our energy intensive hospital laboratories. Hospital laboratories are unique in their consumption of disposable goods, their waste generation, and their exposure to biologic tissues and chemical compounds.

    Session Description 

    This session explores the unique issues involved when taking what we have learned from the successful Greening the OR® Initiative to our energy intensive hospital laboratories. Hospital laboratories are unique in their consumption of disposable goods, their waste generation, and their exposure to biologic tissues and chemical compounds. Unlike the operating rooms or other areas of the hospital, the line between contaminated and non-contaminated waste is often unclear. Presented by a multidisciplinary team, including a senior director of sustainability, a mechanical engineer, and a physician, this session will present a case study of what Cleveland Clinic is doing to green the labs, focusing on the issues of proper waste stream utilization, energy usage, and education in this unique but ubiquitous environment. “Greening the Labs” is the next frontier in health care sustainability

  • CM14B1-Behavioral-Based Energy Reduction

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 06/04/2014

    Recorded on 06/04/2014 - During a pilot a case study was born. Ridgeview followed a step-by-step plan focused on gaining leadership support and buy-in, identifying and implementing no- and low-cost operational strategies, and utilizing tools and materials for employee awareness and engagement.

    Session Description

    During a pilot a case study was born. Ridgeview followed a step-by-step plan focused on gaining leadership support and buy-in, identifying and implementing no- and low-cost operational strategies, and utilizing tools and materials for employee awareness and engagement. With 15 months of data, the pilot results showed that a behavior energy program for health care can provide significant energy and cost savings without major financial investments on the part of the organization. RMC saved more than $75,000 and reduced overall energy use by 6 percent without negatively affecting patient comfort or safety. Today, this is grown to nearly 10 percent. In addition, an employee survey was conducted to determine how the program affected employee attitudes and behaviors. With nearly 400 of RMC's 1,575 employees responding, 89 percent are more likely to engage in energy saving behavior, 83 percent have a more positive attitude toward saving energy, 91 percent learned that individuals can have an impact on organizational energy costs.

  • CM14C3-Inhaled Anesthetics: Big Problem and Big Solutions

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    Recorded on 06/04/2014 - The health care industry accounts for 8 percent of United States greenhouse gas (GHG) production. This estimate does not, however, account for inhaled anesthetics which are potent greenhouse gases. New Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) research shows that inhaled anesthetics are responsible for the single most significant environmental footprint within the operating room, and may account for as much as a staggering 1 percent of the health care industry's total GHG production.

    Session Description 

    The health care industry accounts for 8 percent of United States greenhouse gas (GHG) production. This estimate does not, however, account for inhaled anesthetics which are potent greenhouse gases. New Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) research shows that inhaled anesthetics are responsible for the single most significant environmental footprint within the operating room, and may account for as much as a staggering 1 percent of the health care industry's total GHG production. Left unmitigated, the costs of a "business as usual" attitude will contribute to the worsening of public health and increase the demand for health services. While environmental public health benefits are not tangibly felt, opportunities exist to reduce the environmental impacts of anesthesia practice and maintain high standards of care. In addition to the latest research explaining the overall contribution of inhaled anesthetics to U.S. greenhouse gas production, mitigation strategies will be reviewed including different Waste Anesthetic Gas (WAG) capturing systems, as well as strategies for alterations in clinical practices.
