    Default Anyone e-smoke on patient floors in hospital?

    Wonder if anyone visiting or being a patient in a hospital has whipped out their e-cig & puffed away while there?

    You would want to be VERY discreet. Most Hospitals do not allow smoking on their property. I work at one. The Docs. would be interested and tolerant of the E-cig from my limited experience in conversation about them, but they are not administration. Hospitals would want the documentation that e-cig is safe before allowing it's use.
    It is one of the saddest sights to see a patient pushing an IV thru the snow to cross the street and lite up. They do offer patches and other Nic replacment, but no liting up...

    Thumbs up 1st e-cig

    My husband delivered my first e-cig when I was in the hospital.. I smoked it in my room.

    When I had to go back I smoked it in the ER and my room. the ER- doctor was interested in a cigar.

    Smoked it in 2 of my doctors office also.

    I've use it at all of my doctors offices. Not in the waiting room though. When I am in the examining room waiting for the doctor drives me crazyyyyy. The cig helps calm me down alot. None of my doctors object. The operative word here is discreetly. If I have to go in the hospital, I will draw my little curtain and puff away.

    the question I would say is why? If you work in the environment and can sneak off to take a drag or two...makes sense...if you are waiting for a quick appointment...why???? can't you have a bit of willpower??? guess I just don't understand.

    I have not had the chance to smoke in a hospital, will let you know as soon as I do, will mostly likely get alot of attention, as the e cig has not taken off here in South Africa yet, maybe if we run a few infomercial thinks will change...

    I would think that if you are in a health service environment...info commerical or not...because there is an exhale...there will be a problem....but maybe I am wrong. I would recommend someone not to advertise their use of ecigs. Yeah, use them without being seen, but you are talking about a health area....if you test it you just might make it hard for those that are careful to be able to sneak a drag here and there...
