What could be improved
The main entrance to the hopsital is littered with cigarette stubs which are carried on peoples shoes into the main building .People stand at the entrance smoking and I have even seen people with drips on tripods standing there, what a image of health care! There were security guards around and the main information desk was full of people -but no one said anything .When I mentioned it ,the answer was ' it is a non smoking building 'but no one took ownership of inforcing it .Why not provide a seperate building or place for the smokers and lift the standard .It looks, and is awful -against all health care standards .It cannot be good for patients to stand in the cold and I'm sure visitors have enough time to smoke before they entry the hospital.
