Missouri hospitals moving to ban tobacco

Missouri’s hospitals are moving quickly to ban tobacco, not just in the building, but anywhere on hospital property. Some patients are so addicted, they drag their I-V bottles, tubes, and cart out to the parking lot of their hospital so they can get a nicotine fix. Those days are numbered. Hospitals and state health officials have worked to change regulations so hospitals can ban tobacco use anywhere on the hospital campus, not just in the building. [Missourinet.com]
