Non-smoking hospital

Na Homolce Hospital meets the requirements of the anti-smoking law that came into force on 31 May 2017. With effect from 1 January 2017, the hospital banned the sale of all tobacco products on its premises, joining the ranks of hospitals that publicly adopt an anti-smoking policy.

In addition to providing treatment, a hospital should also act as an organization that protects the health of its patients and employees. Smoking is the leading avoidable cause of morbidity and mortality.

Our hospital has had a non-smoking policy since 16 March 1992, in accordance with applicable legislation (permitting smoking only in designated areas). As of 1 January 2017, the hospital meets all requirements of the new anti-smoking law and has the status of a non-smoking hospital under the new legislation. Smokers can use one designated smoking area on the first floor of the hospital building.

Act no. 379/2005 Coll., the anti-smoking law, took effect on 31 May 2017.

Regulations introduced by the anti-smoking law:

  • There is a ban on the sale of all tobacco products on hospital premises. This includes electronic cigarettes and articles resembling any tobacco products.
  • Hospitals must not permit smoking in freely accessible interior areas and areas connected with hospital operation. The only exception is a designated smoking room, an enclosed area whose precise parameters are specified by law.
  • There must be a mechanism in place to ensure adequate action against anyone who might disregard the smoking ban.

Due to the current epidemiological situation in the Czech Republic, visits to all wards are prohibited from 18 September 2020 until further notice. In severe cases, a patient visit is possible after consultation with the attending physician. We implement this measure in order to ensure the safety of patients and hospital staff. Thank you for understanding.

If a coronavirus disease is suspected, contact your general practitioner. More information will be provided by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic on the infoline 1221.
