Hospital Assessment Tool Template

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description EPA Region I-NE has developed a Hospital Assessment Tool Template as part of an OECA grant to collect information from hospitals on environmental performance indicators, waste generation, pollution prevention, and energy/water conservation. Three states (CT, RI and NH) took the template and made it a state specific tool. To conduct the survey, two UNH interns went to 25 hospitals (8-NH, 8-RI and 9-CT) with the state specific tool and collected data to help assess the hospital's environmental performance and potential opportunities. EPA and the States will use the data collected and analyzed by UNH to evaluate hospital mercury programs, to identify sector-wide issues, to develop compliance assistance tools, and to further define healthcare sector activities. The final report "Data Collection and Compilation of EPA's 2003 Hospital Assessment Tool" is available at http://www.unh.edu/p2/nhppp/i2003.html.
