With the continuous deepening of the reform of the medical and health system, the concept of hospital management on the development of hospitals has also gradually changed. Blind expansion of beds, expansion of business, purchase of large-scale instruments and equipment, and introduction of sophisticated technology are no longer the direction of future hospital development. More and more hospital managers realize that the future development of hospitals should be guided by the scientific development concept and adhere to the road of connotative development. Within the scope of regional health planning, according to the needs of residents, rationally use health resources and strengthen hospitals. Management, continuously improve medical standards and service quality, improve the efficiency of hospital operations, enhance core competitiveness, and achieve sustainable development of hospitals. The construction of green hospitals is a powerful measure to promote the development of hospitals under the concept of scientific development. It will promote the sustainable development of the hospital.
The construction of green hospitals is needed for medical safety, nosocomial infection control, and occupational safety.
Medical safety, nosocomial infection control, and occupational safety are the guarantees for the normal development of medical work. Practice has proven that effective control of medical safety, nosocomial infections, and occupational safety incidents is a systematic project that involves all aspects of hospital management. In addition to strictly regulating the behavior of medical personnel and avoiding medical negligence, it is also necessary to strengthen the management of various toxic and harmful characteristics; strengthen the management of the use and maintenance of equipment and facilities. If it is not managed properly, it will also trigger medical safety, nosocomial infections, and occupational safety.
Medical research shows that man-made pollution can cause diseases of the nervous and reproductive systems below cancer, triggering allergic reactions. As a place for medical diseases, in addition to ensuring the safety of patients, the hospital should also create a good environment to ensure that the health of patients, visitors, staff and surrounding communities is not harmed.
With the continuous deepening of the reform of the medical and health system, hospitals are facing more and more severe competition. How to meet the changing medical needs of patients and attract more patients to the hospital is a general concern of hospital managers. The development of society, the prosperity of the economy, and the improvement of the standard of living of the people have made people's requirements for hospitals long beyond the scope of treatment and rescue. In addition to the level of medical care, service quality has become an important factor in the competition between hospitals. Among the many influencing factors of service quality, the weight of hospital environment safety, environmental protection, comfort, and beauty is gradually increasing. Patients should not only enjoy high-level medical services, but also enjoy a safe, environmentally friendly, comfortable, and beautiful environment, in order to minimize the pain caused by the disease and recover from the disease as quickly as possible. Studies have shown that patients who can see the garden outside the window recover 30% faster and need 30% less medicine than patients who can only see the brick wall.
One of the most direct results of the construction of a green hospital is that it can effectively save energy, reduce emissions, improve hospital efficiency, and reduce hospital operating costs. The scarcity and non-renewability of energy make it constantly increase, and the price is constantly rising. Due to the need for environmental protection, the state's management of pollution discharge disposal is becoming more and more strict, which will undoubtedly increase the cost of hospitals in treating waste gas, sewage, and medical waste. Therefore, in the long run, if hospital managers ca n’t take effective measures to control the hospital ’s energy consumption and reduce emissions, it will put the hospital ’s operations under increasing pressure, leaving the hospital without sufficient resources to improve medical care and improve service quality.
