Waste reduction 30.000kg

Date 30-08-2019Waste reduction 30.000kg

Hospital de Olot and Comarcal de la Garrotxa Foundation has reduced approximately 30,000 kilos per year of hospital waste since replacing cotton fabrics in the operating room with microfiber ones in 2011.

This change responds to a European regulation of 2006 with the objective of increasing patient safety, focusing on the tissues involved during a surgical process.
