MEGADYNE introduces the education program “It’s So Easy Being Green”
It has been stated that more than 4 million tons of general waste is produced each year by US healthcare facilities (See “Medical waste: the issue,” Health Care Without Harm, www.noharm.org/us/medicalWaste/issue).
Introduced to support the AORN ‘s guidelines encouraging hospitals and surgical centers to create environmentally responsible policies and procedures, MEGADYNE’s “It’s So Easy Being Green” training program allows healthcare providers to earn continuing education credit for learning about green practices. The program covers waste management, resource conservation and recycling practices, applied conservation, item re-processing, reuse and repair, and green construction practices.
