Where do you people live? I want to come there
, Not only are our students allowed to smoke to and from Clinicals, they can go out on their breaks and smoke, in the smoking booths at the Hospitals, but, I guess that is how it is in Eastern KY where I live, you can be walking in WalMart super center and people will be lit up right in a aisle
everytime I am in there shopping, someone comes over the intercome and tells the customers that this is a NON smoking store blah blah blah, :angryfire same thing. It is awful around here, even grocery stores people smoke. No respect, I personally don't care if someone smokes, but, I don't wan to inhale it or smell it on them, don't they realize when they get done that their hands and breath smells like it all day until they atleast wash the scent of their hands???? :uhoh21: I agree with OP, I don't want someone taking care of me that smells like smoke.
As far as the teachers punishment???? does it state in your syllabus or rules that you cannot smoke during clinicals? If so you need to take the punishment. Otherwise, I would do as OP said, do the work and file a complaint. It needs to be stated on paper what you can and can't do as far as smoking or any other rule.
