An average-sized, 200-bed hospital could see paper costs rise from an estimated €460K per year to €542K per year. Papermakers are increasing their prices between 6% and 15% due to demand, supply, the impact of energy and fuel costs, and freight and shipping challenges. These challenges are set to continue in the current climate, and the knock-on effects are indiscriminate. Hospitals are not immune, as many still record some or all of their patients' medical records on paper.
