Bucks Co Health Director Likes No Smokers Policy

wnpv_politicsBucks County Health Department Director David Damsker says he supports the new Saint Luke’s Hospital policy of not hiring smokers, and he hopes the idea catches on elsewhere with hospitals taking the lead. “Hospitals should be the first place to make a policy like this.  They’re supposed to be a place of health and healing, and it’s difficult to have people walking around and smelling of smoke sometimes when they’re taking care of patients.”

He says he understands the individual rights issue, but it’s not enough when public places are involved.

“I do see both sides of the story, however I look at smoking as a voluntary action that, while legal, is bad for your health, and there’s no good reason for anyone to smoke as far as I can tell, from a health perspective.”

Doctor Damsker says second-hand smoke affects other people, even if the smokers are standing on the sidewalk just off the hospital campus.  Saint Luke’s is based in Bethlehem with another hospital in Quakertown, and the new policy starts May 1.
