Going Green in Medical Practice

With all the talk about the environment, I was wondering how one could "go green" in a medical practice. Here's how.

  • Go paperless/EMR

  • Set the computers to power saving mode

  • Recycle shredded paper (even a paperless office has some paper!)

  • Practice the judicous use of antibiotics

  • Install water saving toilet flushers

  • Develop creative scheduling that promotes decreased medical waste

  • Do procedures with the lights off (joke)

A green medical practice.
