The Bethlehem-based health system says its new policy against hiring nicotine users will save lives, as well as rising health care costs. They are one of the first in the state to implement such a hiring policy.
A Bethlehem-based hospital system is joining a handful of other U.S. workplaces that no longer hire people who use nicotine, a policy that is illegal in 29 other states, including neighboring New Jersey.
St. Luke's Hospital & Health Network, which has a hospital in Quakertown, will begin screening job applicants for nicotine starting May 1, as part of its routine pre-employment drug screening.
I never did support drug screening and this would be one of the reasons why. You will now have an institution that will not hire people that are doing a perfectly legal activity. Down the road in the future.... screening for genentic defects? Screening for alcohol usage (on your free time of course)? Screening for those with high cholesterol levels?
