Study of Environmental Protection System Implementation in Lithuania

02.05.2012
An Example of the Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Centre (Vilnius)

The University of Klaipeda together with its project partners (BioCon Valley Germany and Pomeranian Medical University Poland) is implementing the „Eco4Life - South Baltic Network for Environmental and Life Sciences to Boost Cross Border Cooperation” project, one of the targets of which is to familiarise with the “Green hospital” concept and the possibilities of its appliance in Lithuania.

This year’s May 15th a study tour to the Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Centre in Vilnius, the only one Lithuanian healthcare institution withISO 9001and ISO 14001 standards and having a "Bureau Veritas" certificate is planned.

The Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Centre is a leader in life sciences area and it is providing various healthcare services, from interventive treatment to early disease diagnostic. The aims of the Centre healthcare with minimising environmental impact assessment policies is to provide the patients (Centre clients) with only the high quality and safe healthcare services, to work with maximum safety, to be a patient-, employee- and environmental-friendly institution and to constantly improve its healthcare and environmental protection quality management.
The trip is being organised for Western Lithuania healthcare institutions, Region administrations and life sciences representatives. The aims will be to familiarise with the ISO 9001and 14001 certification procedures, to discuss the positive aspects of the certification and the difficulties of the management system implementation. At the time of the meeting with the Centre representatives the relevant questions will be discussed, such as the options of the waste and wastewaters management, microbiological pollution control, optimisation of the energy use, maintenance of the safe working environment. The Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Centre managers will also share the experience of how the environmental protection management system has been implemented, how the environmental protection programme was prepared and what indicators are showingthe results of the management system being present.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...

Im Focus: Nanorobots propel through the eye

Scientists developed specially coated nanometer-sized vehicles that can be actively moved through dense tissue like the vitreous of the eye. So far, the transport of nano-vehicles has only been demonstrated in model systems or biological fluids, but not in real tissue. The work was published in the journal Science Advances and constitutes one step further towards nanorobots becoming minimally-invasive tools for precisely delivering medicine to where it is needed.

Researchers of the “Micro, Nano and Molecular Systems” Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, together with an international...
