Hospitals go smoke free with mild success

Organizations that implement smoke-free campuses show that about 10 percent of smokers kick the habit, reports The Tennessean. However, that leaves the other 90 percent to smoke in other public areas nearby. As more hospitals issue smoking bans, including recently, the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, N.J., and Auburn Memorial Hospital in New York, institutions must weigh the health benefits with the potential backlash from employees about inconveniences.
