Pittsburgh Mercy toughens stance on workers' tobacco use

As the smoke dissipates on recent health system tobacco bans in the region, another care provider is looking to clear the air even more.

Pittsburgh Mercy Health System will prohibit its employees from using tobacco products of any kind during work shifts effective Feb. 1, 2015. The ban means employees are not allowed to use tobacco products at any time during their work shift even if they were to leave the health system campus or if they were on break.

“We’re a health and wellness organization, so we feel it’s our responsibility to our employees, to the people we serve but also to the community to promote health and wellness,” said Stephanie Murtaugh, senior director of Mercy Community Health, the population health division of Pittsburgh Mercy.
