    Default smokers at the hospital doors

    Went to pick up the boss who was visiting someone in the hospital. I was amazed at the number of patients (a lot of older people) in white dressing gowns standing and sitting at the main entrance having a smoke.

    As the song says it did seem a sad site. I'm not bashing smoking as people should have the right to do what they want - but it did seems ironic to see it at the entrance to the hospital.

    I’m not sure what the solution is as some of the older people have probably been smoking for years and they can’t switch off when they are in hospital.

    Anyway, I do love the song

    Oops posted on wrong bit, could someone move it to the general section - Sorry

    Many TAs for shifting

    My Mother is in hospital at the moment and I noticed that they have banned smoking on the whole site, even the car parks.

    Yep, a lot of hospitals have done that Gary - total ban on site, certainly close to the buildings anyway. Last thing I'd want when coming out of a hospital door, or any building, is to have a pile of smoke in my face from a dozen smokers stood outside.

    There were big No Smoking signs at the entrance, but I don't know if they were warnings about no smoking inside. No one seemed bothered

    I thought it had been like that for years, but it depends on how often you visit hospitals!

    Never mind, just watch Jaws and catch Larry having a fag INSIDE the hospital!

    Aberdeen hospital is terrible for it, people getting shoved to the door in there s for a fag !! Can`t see why they can`t have a smoking room with a smokebuster in the roof like they have offshore, you can hardly smell smoke in the room.. I am anti-smoking but realise they need somewhere and front doors isn`t the answer (same with pubs) ...

    Smoking rooms are no longer permitted
    Most were removed in Scotland throughout 2006

    I know that, my point is they are offshore and they work, all the smokers are in 1 place not bothering anybody else and the air is almost clear anyway, new legislation is forcing us to breathe in smoke everytime we enter a hospital / pub / restuarant etc ....
