As I read about two brave soldiers fighting on the front lines for our freedom, I thought of the Lima hospitals' policy of employing only nonsmokers. How ironic that soldiers are risking their lives for our freedom, which is being compromised here.Should St. Rita's Medical Center and Lima Memorial Health System decide to employ only healthy staff, they would need to go a few steps more and rid the hospital of other unhealthy problems such as salt, sugar and caffeine. The hospitals might be missing out on highly qualified medical personnel over their own policy. I wonder if our hospitals could even survive, let alone be so extravagant, if they chose only patients that make healthy choices.
