As more and more is learned about the dangers of secondhand smoke, more businesses are becoming tobacco-free. This is important to protect the health and well-being of people who might be exposed to the harmful effects of secondhand smoke simply by being around another person who is smoking. Fortunately, Sunrise and Sunrise Children’s Hospitals are tobacco-free !
All employees, visitors, and patients are prohibited from smoking or using any form of tobacco on our premises, including the areas outside of our buildings. This new policy was instituted in response to our employees’ wishes. A survey was conducted to find out how the staff felt about the campus becoming tobacco-free. A majority of employees felt that eliminating all tobacco was the best thing to do for their health and the health of the other people visiting our children’s hospital.
This was a necessary decision, as secondhand smoke is very dangerous to children, especially kids with pediatric illnesses. All expecting mothers and even mothers who have already given birth should avoid secondhand smoke as much as possible, as they can put their babies at risk by simply walking through a cloud of smoke.
Parents of the babies in the NICU wing of the hospital worry enough about their children’s health—prohibiting tobacco takes one worry off their minds. No mother should have to worry about exposing their baby to this known carcinogen when visiting our hospital for health care.
Secondhand smoke is often responsible for cancer, lung infections, asthma, and ear infections. No tobacco of any kind is allowed at the hospital because our priority is keeping babies, kids, and adults safe, as well as promoting a healthy atmosphere in general.

For most children, hospital visits are not usually noted as being “fun experiences,” as they often entail being in a strange place with strange people, not feel well, and separation from family and friends for extended periods of time. Fortunately, there is Child Life . Child Life Specialists assist children and their families during a hospital stay. Here’s an overview of what these crucial members of the pediatric hospital team do:
- Child Life Specialists can help kids prepare for surgery or medical treatment by using toys or dolls to explain what will happen. They can also offer age-appropriate information and counseling for the child, and can help parents learn how to reassure their children about upcoming procedures.
- For kids, spending time in the hospital for medical care can be very boring. A Child Life Specialist has a wide assortment of games, toys, books, and movies for kids to enjoy during their time in the children’s hospital. The excitement of looking forward to a new toy or game each day can take the edge off the boredom and reduce fear and discomfort.
- The Child Life Department also sets up activities involving other kids in the hospital. These may be group games, painting, storytelling, arts and crafts, or holiday celebrations. Many kids look forward to socializing with others their age, and their parents can get a well-deserved break for coffee or a snack while the kids play with their new friends.
- Visiting a sibling in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) can also be very scary for children. A Child Life Specialist can help prepare siblings for their first visit with the new baby, helping them be less afraid and resulting in a happier visit for the entire family.
