Real-World Perspective: A Community Hospital's Switch to IPM

Glens Falls Hospital is the sole, comprehensive, acute-care community hospital serving a 2,600-square-mile, predominantly rural region encompassing Warren, Washington, Hamilton, Essex and northern Saratoga counties of upstate New York. A Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (H2E) Partner since October 2006, the 410-bed facility implemented an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program in August 2006 as one in a series of steps toward greener operations. H2E's Greener Operations Now staff spoke by phone with George Moxham, Glens Falls director of housekeeping and laundry, about the transition to IPM. This article is an edited transcription of the interview.
