Studies show hospital petients with access to natural light, fresh air and green space recover more quickly and report a better hospital experience, and this is reflected in green hospital.
The green cleaning methods go beyond simply reducing the number of chemicals used in hospital cleaning to include a reduction in the amount of disposable materials and other waste that could end up in the environment. Using green cleaning methods will help protect employees and patients from asthmagens, carcinogens and other toxins that have been linked to birth defects, kidney damage, and nervous system damage among other health issues.
Many hospital cleaning staffs are also finding that it less expensive to go green, especially when considering the costs of worker protection and green versus conventional products on a per cleaning basis. It is essential that hospital be as clean as possible, so going green may be key to the process.
