Congratulations to Delhi Hospital and Rural Health Clinic for implementing a tobacco-free workplace policy.
While the facility is required to comply with The Louisiana Smoke-Free Air Act by prohibiting smoking indoors, Delhi decided to go above and beyond by passing a policy that makes the campus grounds tobacco-free.
The policy not only creates a healthy work environment by removing harmful secondhand smoke and prohibiting tobacco use on campus, but it is complemented by Delhi’s strides to help smokers quit. By working with the Louisiana Tobacco Control Program’s Project H.E.A.L, Delhi underscores their dedication to their patients’ and employees’ well-being; smokers and tobacco users alike are sure to find the support and resources they need to quit for good.
Delhi’s new policy serves as a model for other health care institutions in our state wanting to go tobacco-free. For those interested in resources to help them beat tobacco addiction, visit www.quitwithusla.org.
