Law 42/2010 on health measures against smoking establishes a total ban on smoking in health centers and throughout their premises.
Parc Taulí has been a member of the Catalan Network of Smoke-Free Hospitals (XCHSF) since 2005, integrated into the European network European Network Smoke-free Hospital, promoted by the European Commission.
Both patients and professionals at Parc Taulí who are smokers can take advantage of the programs and aids for smoking cessation offered by the Corporation.
The Catalan Network of Smoke-Free Hospitals carries out and evaluates the degree of implementation of the project in each center every 2 years, by achieving the quality standards of the European Non Smoke Hospitals (ENSH), which are those that must meet a health organization to be considered free of tobacco smoke.
In our institution, the Smoke-free Park Taulí promoter committee is the one who promotes, dynamizes and evaluates the guidelines established by the ENSH:
- Preserve the premises and the environment of the hospital free of tobacco smoke.
- Mark hospital areas as free of tobacco smoke.
- Carry out health promotion, making both workers and citizens aware of the risks of tobacco use.
Offer help to smoking patients and workers (triptych) to stop smoking.
