Laws for smoking in nursing homesRegister Today!
- by calliou Aug 20, '09I need to know if there is a law about non smoking personnel having to supervise residents on their smoke breaks.
This is becoming an issue at our facility and if we knew if there IS a law or ISN'T, it would help a great deal.
If you find it, please let me know where.
- Aug 25, '09 by slmapd121507I'm not sure about that kind of law, but there needs to be a law that protects non-smoking employees from having to assist smoking patients. I'm a non-smoker and I shouldn't have to expose myself to smoke if I don't choose to!
