Improve Your Sustainability Plan

4 Ways to Improve Your Green Health

1. Upgrade to LED Lighting. LEDs don't just save money. Residents of Presence Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, IL, reported improved visibility when the hospital upgraded to LED, which led to fewer slips and falls. The short-term expense of upgrading to LEDs will pay off with increased long-term dividends, including resident, staff, and visitor safety.

2. Install Programmable Occupancy Sensors. The majority of long-term care residents' accidents occurs in their rooms while they are alone. Sensors detect motion, allowing residents to safely and easily move from room to room at night. Additionally, sensors automatically turn off lights when a space is unoccupied, provide flexible light levels for multi-use spaces and overall comfort, and can even dim lights when adequate ambient daylight is available, thereby reducing the overall demand for lighting energy by up to 70%.

3. Look for janitorial supplies with the Green Seal™ or EcoLogo™ mark on their labels. These programs set standards for environmental stewardship in product manufacturing, use, and innovation in more than 40 product categories, including cleaning chemicals, skin care, and paper products.

Cleaning and maintaining your facility with environmentally preferred products minimizes VOC emissions and controls allergens from dyes and fragrances, resulting in indoor environments that are cleaner, safer, more pleasant, and healthier for your residents, staff, and visitors.

4. Regularly change filters in HVAC systems and perform system tune-ups. Since long-term health care residents spend the vast majority of their time indoors and in the same facility, it is especially important that the air quality is good.
