cigarettes?

  1. Hi, just wondering how other staff in hospitals in Qld are coping with the blanket ban on smoking cigarettes on hospital grounds. I work in a psych unit and we have had an increased number of violent incidents with our psychotic patients unable to smoke as they are not allowed to leave the unit. Also the feedback from the general public on the mess on the footpaths and seeing staff and patients standing (or sitting in deck chairs) out the front smoking is quite negative, "You'd think they'd have somewhere out of sight for them to smoke" was heard in a local supermarket!
