 Penn Hospital to Adopt Strict Anti-Smoking Policy

Stating its strict anti-smoking policy, a Pennsylvania hospital said that it will not be hiring any staff who test positive for nicotine starting next year.

Danville-based Geisinger Health System announced that its policy of screening job applicants for nicotine will start from February 1 next year though the hospital added that rejected candidate can kick the habit and reapply after six months.

The latest step comes four years after the hospital had banned smoking on its grounds and hospital spokeswoman Marcy Marshall said that the decision to start screening job applicants is an attempt to make the hospital staff smoke free. She added that there was no danger of rejecting wrong applicants since second hand smoking will not result in a positive test.
