I live on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, near what is known as “Bed Pan Alley,” where numerous hospitals are located, and every single one prohibits smoking in front of their entrances.
If only my employer had a similar policy.
There’s nothing like having to take a deep breath (so I don’t have to inhale), and say “excuse me” to walk by a smoking pregnant woman to try and entire my hospital. And to think if anything goes wrong with the pregnancy the lawyers will conquer.
The Cleveland Clinic has a similar policy – no smoking on the property. See the “Smash the Ash” campaign website: http://www.clevelandclinic.org/smashtheash
