Pollution Prevention for Physicians
The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Pollution Prevention Program (NHPPP) partnered with the New Hampshire Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons to promote the proper management and recycling of mercury-containing devices.
The partnership conducted a survey to evaluate the medical community's level of awareness about mercury devices and number of mercury-containing intraocular pressure reducers and sphygmomanometers in use. In 2005, New Hampshire had 54 licensed ophthalmologists practicing at 18 medical offices. Seventy-eight percent of medical offices responded to the survey.
