Background: Green Hospital's standards are an organized and coordinated effort to introduce environmental protection programs within an organization. The aim of this study was to evaluate standards of green hospital in affiliated hospitals of North Khorasan’s University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: This descriptive- analytical study evaluated the status of green hospital standards in 7 hospitals of North Khorasan’s University of Medical Sciences in 2016. Data were collected using 13 checklists investigating 8 variables of green hospital. Data were then analyzed using SPSS 16 software by descriptive statistics (distribution and percentage of frequency and mean score) and analytical statistics (t-test, Pearson correlation, and Kolmogorov-Smirnov test).
Results: The rate of observing green hospital standards was 67.41 %. The highest score in this regard was related to hospital B (74.08 %), while the lowest score was related to hospital C (53.27 %). The
water consumption management variable was the first priority for improvement by 52.12 %. There was a significant relationship among management, leadership, and the number of employees. A significant difference was also observed for the purchase variable between the teaching and non- teaching hospitals.
Conclusion: Implementation of green hospital's standards requires a comprehensive planning on 8 variables under study and transparency of guidelines and relevant legislation, personnel training, and ultimately documentation of the actions taken. In this regard, hospitals are suggested to use the checklists provided by Iran Green Management Association and the recommended methods in their internal assessment.
