Take the Challenge: Replace Disposables with Reusable Healthcare Textiles
Make a contribution to healthcare cost control by investing in reusable gowns, scrubs, uniforms, linen, drapes, curtains, and other reusable textiles. This reduces waste and contributes significantly to efforts to reduce the cost of care.
Savings of $1.4m per year have been made by 30 hospitals using reusable gowns rather than switching to disposables, while $360,000 could be saved per year from converting 20,000 surgical procedures.
Converting to reusables helps everyone, with benefits extending beyond patients and practitioners. Reusables require fewer natural resources to manufacture and deliver, freeing energy to benefit the population at large.
