O.R. efficiency

O.R. efficiency and ProcedurePak packs - less waste equals environmental benefits

O.R. efficiency and green policies being introduced in hospitals go hand in hand. One of the building blocks of O.R. efficiency – ProcedurePak® customised procedure packs from Mölnlycke Health Care – helps to reduce packaging, transportation and waste. These reductions can make significant positive contributions to scaling back hospitals’ carbon footprint. From pre-op assembly of components to smart waste management that reduces surgical waste to ProcedurePak packs’ reduction in packaging material1, hospitals can make strides in their efforts to have a neutral impact on the environment.

To calculate your potential reduction in packaging waste try the ProcedurePak pack value calculator.

5 tonnes less of carbon emissions – in two hospitals1

ProcedurePak packs are not only tailored to your specific needs, they also drastically reduce the amount of packaging material and have a positive impact on surgical waste reduction compared to individually packed products. ProcedurePak can reduce the volume of packaging material by 90 percent1, resulting in one less bag of waste on average for major surgery procedures.

A 2009 study shows that two UK NHS hospitals were able to cut carbon emissions from packaging by over 5.0 tonnes and reduce waste by over 2.6 tonnes after implementing ProcedurePak customised procedure packs from Mölnlycke Health Care1. The same study shows that for each kilogram of customised procedure packs, an average of 0.19 kg carbon dioxide is saved1.
