Elemental Healthcare takes its responsibility to the environment seriously. Over the last decade, the profusion of disposable instruments in surgery has resulted in significant and costly issues for hospitals as they seek to dispose of this waste. Much of the waste is incinerated, at great cost to the environment and to the hospital budget.
Wherever possible, Elemental Healthcare tries to take waste out of the system by using reusable elements in our instruments.
This has the doubly positive effect of reducing the volume and cost of waste disposal, and also reducing the cost of purchase as these products are generally less expensive than the disposable alternative.
Sustainable healthcare solutions for a #greenerNHS include:
YelloPort Elite Resposable™ Port Access | ReNew Laparoscopic Instruments
M/L-10 Clip Applier | LogiCut Resposable™ Scissor
*Compared to fully disposable alternatives. Full details available upon request.
Elemental Healthcare have produced a white paper which considers the role of fully disposable plastic instruments and the considerable issue of plastic waste in the Operating Theatre and examines the benefits of Resposable™(semi-disposable) medical devices as an alternative.
We also examine the consequential CO2 emissions of Operating Theatre waste management to provide a comparison aiding key decision makers in the NHS and private healthcare.
