Abstract: 

Mercury finds wide application in equipment and supplies used in the healthcare industry. This 17-minute video informs healthcare professionals about the sources of mercury in hospitals and clinics and encourages them to use mercury-free alternatives. The video also outlines the proper management procedures for mercury-containing products. The manual, Mercury Use in Hospitals and Clinics, accompanies the video and provides more detail about sources and management options.

An acompanying manual entitled, Mercury Use in Hospitals and Clinics, is also available from the OEA. Another excellent reference is the "Hospitals for a Healthy Environment" website (www.h2e-online.org).
