Patient and Visitor Smoking is an important initiative, The Mattawa Hospital has implemented a designated smoking area, on hospital
As a health care facility committed to providing the safest and healthiest environment possible for patients, staff, physicians and visitors our ultimate goal is to become totally smoke-free.property for patientsand staff only. Smoking in other areas is prohibited.
Being sensitive and compassionate to the needs to those who smoke has begun by limiting where smoking is permitted on hospital property. This compromise respects the right of the non-smokers and addresses the needs of smokers.
Cooperation in abiding by the rules will ensure the safety and comfort of patients, visitors and staff. Those observed smoking other than patients and staff in the designated area will be asked to butt out.
