Tony - don't you dare go beating yourself up over anything. I bet your mum would be so proud of you, 'cos I am and I don't even know you http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_biggrin.gif You sound to me to be a good, kind and very caring person and I am pleased to have got to know you on here. (Apart ...
It is upsetting to read JohnRJ's post in which he points out that we don't know Norman and the 'good work' he has done. Ponder on this quote from Norman's post and just thank god that he is not in a position (hopefully) to take this poisonous opinion of his into any of the Hospices and Care Homes wh...
Our local Hospice has received dispensation to allow smoking to continue; I thought this might be useful if others are interested in pursuing the matter for their own Hospice/Care Home or whatever. My husband is also a non-smoker and so it doesn't affect him and although he is probably in the last y...
<t>Norman, I think that is the most obnoxious reply that anyone could have made. I pointed out earlier that many of these older people currently dying with smoking related diseases (and other diseases) put their lives on the line for us when they were young and fit, and the Government at that time m...
Oh heck Ken and Tony http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_sad.gif We'll get banned from the Board http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_sad.gif I felt very sad when someone else said that lighting a cigarette was something "up with which he would not put". (A strange choice actually because it was orig...
<t>I think I was particularly sad to read the first posting on this topic. It does appear that it is not only in the field of healthcare that people take a job and then try to get the rules altered to suit them. Although it doesn't fit on this board, the example of the teaching assistant who turned ...
<t>Thank god for you Tony. I thought I was on my own here. As you say about the pollution we come across every day just walking down the street (which is far more toxic and dangerous than cigarette smoke), I wonder if these people who are so violently anti-smoking are driving the cars which are pois...
<t>Thank you for that Gavin, although it doesn't seem to further the discussion on 'cigarettes' on here. I assume that, quite rightly, you are pointing out to those who are in paid employment as Carers that they need to look elsewhere. Would it be possible to filter these people out at the stage whe...
I think Arbitration and Conciliation can only take place after all the normal channels have been pursued and failed. Bluey4 hasn't said that he/she has actually taken up the matter through the normal management channels.
This is a debate that the Management Team at our local Hospice have just completed. It was unanimously decided that even though some of the patients were dying of smoking-related illnesses, it would be unneccessarily cruel at this stage of their lives to prevent them smoking. A very caring and wise ...
