Why is being smoke-free important to us?

At St John of God Murdoch Hospital, health is our business. We are dedicated to protecting and promoting the health of our patients, caregivers and visitors.

Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) comes from the burning end of a cigarette, pipe or cigar and is also the smoke breathed out by the smoker. ETS is proven to cause cancer and is an even greater health threat to people who already have heart and lung illnesses.

How does the policy help smokers to quit?

Helping smokers who want to quit is important to us. Assistance includes access to nicotine replacement therapy

for caregivers. Inpatients are encouraged to discuss this option with their treating doctor.

More information is available from the WHS team on 9366 1399 or 9311 4616 and the QUIT Line 13 78 48.
