Abstract

[Extract] When it comes to environmentally friendly alternatives, infection control is coming late to the table. Some options are available, but serious research and investment is required to progress further.

Every day the Australian healthcare sector provides hospital-based care and services to several thousand Australians. In 2014–15 there were 1322 hospitals in Australia. Of these 698 were public hospitals and 624 private hospitals that employed about 330,000 and 64,400 full-time equivalent staff respectively. In the same year Australian hospitals provided almost 10.2 million hospitalisations.
