Toxics

Energy efficiency

Taking a precautionary approach, we are reducing patient and employee exposure to toxics by maintaining a virtually mercury-free environment; procuring Green Seal-certified cleaning products that have the minimum human and environmental health impacts, while maintaining hospital-grade effectiveness; furthering our latex-safe environment; reducing PVC and DEHP exposure; and reducing food-to-plastic contact. We also are reducing the toxicity in our built environment through the use of safer adhesives, sealants, furnishings and finishes. We have an enterprise-wide contract for integrated pest management (IPM) that adheres to Green Guide for Healthcare guidelines for IPM.
