Abstract

As I pushed the elevator button, my colleague Dan, the director for environmental services at the hospital where I work, said, “Come with me. It's up one, down two.” As we entered the stairwell, I discovered that Dan's motto meant more than just walking up one flight or down two to avoid using the elevator and perhaps get a little fitter; it also was “a way to free up the elevator for patients so they don't have to wait for a busy elevator,” he explained.
