I wish they wouldn't hire nurses or health staff that smoked.

I was in the er the other night due to shortness of breath and chest pain. The nurse walked in and reeked of smoke.

When I'm not having issues breathing, I can stand it. When I'm having issues breathing, I can't stand to be around people who smoke, it makes me cough.


Or if they still have to hire people who smoke, make it to where if they are in scrubs, they can't smoke.


It's gross and disgusting, when I'm sick and needing treatment, I don't want to smell smoke.

I have asthma and currently have bronchitis that is turning into walking pneumonia.

I had to ask for a different nurse and she was not happy about that.

Quoting 20Keller12: Oh that would piss me off so bad... When my asthma is acting up smoke makes it a LOT worse.

Agreed. How are you promoting good health and working in the "health" industry and you yourself smoke? Gross.

 Most hospitals around here will fire you for smoking on the clock or coming in smelling like smoke.
