Grand River Hospital, Ontario

Initiative Goal:?Cost savings and waste reduction for Grand River Hospital (GRH).?

Benefits
Environmental:?Through a partnership with a private organization, many single use devices (SUD¡¯s) are now being collected on site to be recycled and diverted from the landfill.

Financial: ?This free partnership is reducing the hospital¡¯s carbon footprint and waste costs as well as a creating a new source of funding for equipment purchases.

Currently accumulating company credits towards the purchase of equipment.

Administration

Through the customized service model, there is no additional cost to the hospital as their partner manages all of the collection, disposal and shipping processes.

The Issue

Debbie Richarz, Director of Food and Environmental Services, and Max Kan, Environmental Services Supervisor and Waste Lead (pictured above), learned about a no-cost opportunity to partner with a third party to reduce their carbon footprint.? This free program was fully customized to maximize waste diversion through the collection of single use devices (compression sleeves, laparoscopic sealers, ultrasonic scalpers, trocars, etc.) throughout the hospital.? ¡°Our OR team has always been interested in ways to reduce waste generated by their service and were therefore keen to participate,¡± said Max. In a study conducted by The University of Western Ontario, it was stated that 20-33% of waste generated by hospitals is generated through procedures in operating rooms.

Sustainability Strategy Implemented

In late summer of 2017 Grand River¡¯s environmental service team met with their OR Team to propose the new program.? Grand River quickly gained buy-in and, following a short in-service provided by their partner, posters and recycling bins were placed in their soiled utility rooms, and hamper stands were positioned on patient¡¯s floors to initiate collections.

Implementation process

The process involved was simple to implement, so much so that in November, 2017 GRH successfully expanded their efforts through the addition of supplementary hamper stands in the OR and PACU to increase collections of compression sleeves which has further added to the amount of waste being diverted on a monthly basis. These compression sleeve hampers are located in their OR and surgery rooms. SUDs are generated/collected only from OR rooms. While the hamper collection bin and recycling bins exist as two separate programs. Through this implementation GRH¡¯s partner has collected both general waste destined for landfill and biomedical waste.

Tracking Progress

Since September 2017, Grand River Hospital has diverted 1,302 lbs. of garbage from landfill and reduced their waste costs by $1,990 and established $1,000 in company credits towards the purchase of equipment. This equipment includes repurchasing SUDs or an option to purchase other products i.e. mattresses/beds.

Customized analytics are provided quarterly, allowing for detailed documentation of on-site waste diversion and collection rates as depicted below.

Challenges and Lessons Learned

Engaging the stakeholders early in the process and providing in-services to the staff to answer questions and concerns was key to the success of the program, and created immediate buy in and interest in the program.? Finally, having Grand River¡¯s partner provide a physical presence on the unit in the first week¡¯s post-implementation was key to their success. On-going and regular follow-ups have ensured that the program remains dynamic and that collections continue to increase as they maintain commitment to being an environmentally conscious organisation.

Canadian Context

The third-party reprocessing industry emerged in the U.S. and Germany approximately two decades ago in response to the growing cost of healthcare, including ¡°single-use¡± devices and because third-parties have experience with reprocessing techniques. Canadian hospitals however are reaching the initial stages of exploring single use device reprocessing services. Partnership for reprocessing devices has potential to assist health care facilities in reducing their reliance on having waste removed, incinerated and discarded to the landfill.

Coalition Two-Time Winner of ENERGY STAR Advocate of the Year https://www.google.com//a39/coalition-two-time-winner-of-energy-star-advocate-of-the-year-award/#utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss /a39/coalition-two-time-winner-of-energy-star-advocate-of-the-year-award/#respond Thu, 22 Jun 2017 19:11:46 +0000 /a39/?p=2209 The Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care is honoured to announce we have again been granted the ENERGY STAR? Advocate of the Year Award for work in promoting and facilitating the adoption of ENERGY STAR qualified products within Canada’s health services sector during 2016-2017.

“The Coalition has worked diligently over the years to improve energy efficiency within Canada’s health sector and winning the ENERGY STAR Advocate of the Year award only serves to reinforce our resolve to help make Canadian hospitals and long-term care homes as energy efficient as possible. On behalf of the Coalition and our stakeholders across Canada, I’m very honoured to again accept the award on behalf of our team,” said Executive Director Linda Varangu. “We are honoured to be acknowledged for our contribution to improving energy management practices within the sector, and our advocacy of ENERGY STAR as a key component of an energy efficient and climate change resilient health facility.”

“ENERGY STAR Canada exemplifies our government’s commitment to improved energy efficiency as we transition to a low-carbon, clean-growth economy. On behalf of Canadians, I am proud to recognize the Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care for their efforts to increase the number of energy-efficient products in the market, and for making it easier for health care institutions to save money and reduce energy use. All of today’s award winners can be proud of their outstanding innovations in energy efficiency” said Jim Carr, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources.

For seventeen years, the Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care has been driving leadership in environmentally-sustainable health care practices by helping those working in health care facilities, non-governmental and governmental organizations, individuals, students and businesses to share green health care best practices and to become better equipped to deal with the growing demands placed upon them to be environmentally responsible.

Some noteworthy activities and accomplishments in 2016 include numerous articles in the Canadian Green Health Care Digest promoting ENERGY STAR to Canadian and international readership with an approximate reach of 4500 per issue; recommending ENERGY STAR in more than 20 building energy assessments, including community hospitals, First Nations and remote northern health facilities; and the promotion of ENERGY STAR at national and provincial conferences and trade shows, webinars, teleconferences, stakeholder events and in media articles.

More recently, the Coalition undertook a study of medical imaging devices as a potential equipment category eligible for ENERGY STAR certification in a joint project with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

As a result of the Coalition’s ongoing energy conservancy work through HealthCare Energy Leaders Canada, tens of thousands of ENERGY STAR certified products have been installed in care facilities and physical plant and energy managers have a far greater understanding of how beneficial ENERGY STAR is from both energy and financial savings perspectives.

Using detailed walk-through audits and personalized opportunity assessment reports, the Coalition’s team demonstrates the benefit of installing ENERGY STAR certified equipment and creating a healthier work and healing environment while allowing for scarce health care dollars to be directed back into compassionate patient diagnosis, care and treatment.

In 2015, the Coalition won its first Advocate of the Year Award.
