"Fragrances don't smell beautiful to everyone"
Sunday 27 June 2010
Canada's Women's College Hospital has formulated a fragrance-free policy and produced a poster that highlights the problems some people have with fragrances:
At Women’s College Hospital, empowering our patients with accessible information about their rights and responsibilities is an important piece of the equation when it comes to well-being and accessing health care. To meet this need, a new information program has been launched throughout the hospital. Near every elevator and in many clinics, you’ll see whiteboards containing posters promoting some of the things most important to our patients and their families – equity, privacy, patient affairs and the WCH fragrance-free policy.
“Our policies and processes in these four areas have recently been updated, and we’re committed to getting the word out about what we’re doing to protect our patients,” says Marilyn Emery, president and CEO at WCH.
The Fragrance-Free policy focuses on:
Reminding everyone to wear fragrance-free products at the hospital because fragrances can make some of our patients and staff feel sick.
