Green & Clean Standard for Hospitals.

 

Healthcare industry faces two major challenges. One concerns the safety and the other affordability. Safety comes through effective regulation and incentivizing quality, whereas affordability is achieved by improving efficiency through optimal use of resources and cutting down waste and efficient processes.

We are aware about how the environment influences human health through exposure to poor quality: air, water or land. Adverse impacts can come through physical, chemical or biological exposure. Hospital air quality plays very important role in air concentration of pathogens which can result in adverse clinical outcomes. Many infections are acquired through physical contact and are result of improper hygiene or lack of cleanliness.  

 

Hospital is a place of healing. Therefore has to have a robust system in place, which mitigate the adverse effects on environment within the hospital premises and at the same time does not in any way impacts external surroundings adversely. GREEN and CLEAN Hospital Standard provides necessary guidelines for effective environment, facilitating hospital in managing bio-medical waste and in controlling infection. This standard aims at optimum utilization of resources like electricity, water and other consumables, aiding hospitals in delivering safe and affordable healthcare to the community.   

 

The GREEN and CLEAN Hospital aims to mitigate adverse effects on environment (GREEN) and even hasten the recovery process through infection free ambience (CLEAN).

 

 The compliance to this Standard will provide tangible economic benefits like; 

 1. Reduced consumption of raw material/ resource 

 2. Reduced energy consumption 

 3. Improved process efficiency 

 4. Reduced waste management and disposal cost 

 5. Utilisation of recoverable resource 

 6. Include use of renewable energy 

 7. Reduced hospital acquired infection   

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Hospitals shall develop Green and Clean Management System addressing the requirements of this Standard and suitably incorporate them within the existing system. The five pillars of this Standard are: 

 · Leadership and Commitment 

 · Legal Compliance 

 · Environment Sustainability 

 · Operational Control 

 · Monitoring, Measurement and Improvement  

 

  

This standard has been developed by the experts from BUREAU VERITAS (BV) and Association of Healthcare Providers (India) (AHPI -www.ahpi.in). The standard covers all processes; clinical as well as non-clinical and requires hospitals to undertake regular assessments for Green and Clean Management System.
