GLRPPR Sector Resource: Chemical Footprint of Products Commonly Used in Pediatrics Departments
Chemical Footprint of Products Commonly Used in Pediatrics Departments
Hazardous chemicals in products are catalyzing health care organizations to ask suppliers whether or not their products contain these chemicals. This study assessed the chemical footprint -- presence of hazardous chemicals -- of over 250 products commonly found in a hospital pediatric patient room. Pediatrics was chosen for evaluation because of the well-recognized greater sensitivity of children to exposure to toxic chemicals than adults.
