MILLER UPI Business Editor NEW YORK (UPI) - To the average person the disposal of material represents a loss. To many hospitals battling soaring labor costs, the use of disposable cups, plates, knives, forks and spoons represents a savings, according to a survey of 48 major voluntary hospitals around the country. Business Today The raport sponsored by the Maryland Cup Corp. of Owings Mills, Md. s'lid that 91) per cent of the hospitals questioned use disposables In some areus of patient feeding iwograms to cut labor costs. One quarter of the hospitals, according to the survey, expect to substitute paper and plastic dishes for china in the next five years. A New Way of Life Labor costs, the unwillingness of many people to work as dishwashers, higher prices for conventional china, silverware and dishwashing equipment and the breakage involved have made "disposables" a new way of hospital business life. The report said another benefit of disposable eating equipment wias "less cross infection." The disposable food service industry has an estimated volume in excess of $300 million. Maryland Cup, which claims to be the nation's largest independent producer of disposable food service products, says more than 85 per cent of U.S. hospitals and nursing homes use disposables to some degree. William Mumma, director of food service .operations at Wesley Pavilion-Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago, says he turned to disposables in some areas in January, 1968 and has been "expanding them throughout the hospital ever since. "Substantial savings were realized," Mumma said. He figured that Wesley Pavilion saves about $30,000 a year because of the switch from conventional eating utensils. He cited payroll savings at $29,000, $6,600 in food, $215 in china, $185 in silverware, $600 in soap and cleansing com' pound—for a total of $36,600. Cost of the disposables ran about $6,870. Another Case in Point The Presbyterian Medical Center in Denver is another case in point. "We had trouble getting hot meals to the patients on some floors," said Mrs. Carol Hutchins, director of dietary. "There also was breakage and pilferage of china and utensils. Our labor costs were going higher and higher with no improvement in patient feeding." Early in 1970, the hospital studied a system using convenience food, floor-by-floor heating with microwave ovens and utilization of disposable food serving items. Mrs. Hutchinis says "our labor cosits have been cut drastically" and hot meals now can be served on all floors. The old system required 105 full time dieitary workers. Today only 65 are being used. Seventy-one per cent of the hospitals polled also serve convenience food, and 88 per cent said they will be using such food by 1978. Suits Filer! Frank R.
