New Clinical Trials for Sustainable Hospitals

A positive response from Royal Prince Alfred Hospital

The RPA and EcoAid teams prepare for the clinical trial with EcoAid Products

A recent clinical trial was conducted at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney.

The main goal of the trial was to prove the EcoAid sugarcane products could withstand all the normal clinical uses in the hospital.

Trial goals also included a review of how to use more eco-friendly products, reducing medical waste and identifying cost savings.

The RPA team gave very positive initial feedback on the practical and environmental benefits of the EcoAid range.

Support from EcoAid – Patrick and Yvette

The EcoAid team actively supported the trial in RPA theatres, working closely with the CNC and theatre staff to meet their trial needs.

Products used in the trial were the naturally-based products in the EcoAid Sugarcane series of medical-grade hollowware.
