photo No Time to Waste
By Ben Achtenberg & Ann Carol Grossman
in collaboration with Hollie Shaner, RN, and Glenn McRae

In hospitals, waste reduction is cost reduction. That's the message of this video which demonstrates a variety of ways hospitals everywhere can reduce waste and save money at the same time. Profiling innovative programs at three very different hospitals, this video takes a comprehensive look at what each is doing to reduce its solid waste stream: recycling; source reduction; shifting back to reusable gowns, dishes and instruments where practical; and other, more creative recycling initiatives. Health care organizations will find this training package to be an outstandingly effective educational tool for kickstarting their own waste reduction programs and for motivating active staff involvement. Study Guide and Worksheets included.
