MSKCC’s Greening the OR initiative focuses on reducing the environmental impact of the MSKCC operating rooms. According to Practice Greenhealth, the OR is one of the largest users of supplies within a hospital and one of the largest producers of waste. This LibGuide collects articles from journals on relevant topics, including Greening the OR, reprocessing, anesthesia, and reusable devices.
Note: some articles are available as abstracts only. MSKCC staff can request full texts of articles through the MSKCC ILLiad document delivery service (this service is available for MSKCC staff only). Other users, please contact your local library to access full text of articles.
