How to Use My Green Doctor
The key is your Green Team: Businesses around the world, including in health care, use the Green Team model. This is the My Green Doctor approach. Our website shows you step-by-step how to have your own successful office Green Team. Below is a quick guide to using My Green Doctor:
My Green Doctor is for everyone in the office: Managers, nurses, aides, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, therapists, clerical staff, lab techs, administrators, cleaning staff, computer experts, and even the doctors. No scientific or environmental knowledge is needed. Anyone can register and use the website-it is free, confidential and safe to use.
Make “going green” your official policy. You will be more successful if your office and company adopt environmental sustainability as one of your core values. Many businesses, large and small, have taken this step. It is the right thing to do for yourselves, your patients and your community. Check out our “Why Go Green” tab to learn why. We provide PowerPoint shows and a sample environmental sustainability policy to adopt as your own: see the “Resources” tab.
Keys to success for your Green Team. We provide tips for a fun and successful Green Team experience: see “Green Team Success Tips”.
When to meet? Some offices choose a quick five-minute Green Team meeting once every week as part of a regular staff meeting. Consider calling it, “Green Team Tuesday”! Other offices schedule a dedicated Green Team lunch once a month, with each person bringing their own lunch to the meeting. Find a time to meet that suits your office’s busy schedules.
