A smoke-free policy bans smoking of any kind on the property, including but not limited to: cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and electronic cigarettes. The policy should cover the entire property. A smoke-free policy is a great first step toward gradually shifting to a tobacco-free environment.
This WellSpot has implemented a tobacco-free policy.
Tobacco Cessation Coverage
To meet this benchmark for WellSpot recognition, an organization’s employee health plan must cover tobacco cessation counseling and/or medications, including nicotine replacement therapies.
This WellSpot offers tobacco cessation coverage as part of its health plan.
Promotion of LA Tobacco Quitline
Promotion of cessation services available in the state is key to assisting individuals in their attempt to quit. It is important to make these services known so tobacco users know where to go to get help in their quit attempts.
This WellSpot has met all the requirements regarding promotion of the LA Tobacco Quitline.
The 5-2-1-0 program is adapted from the evidence-based 5-2-1-0 program developed by the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center.
5-2-1-0 stands for:
5 or more fruits and vegetables per day
2 or less hours of recreational screen time per day
1 or more hour of physical activity per day
0 sodas or sweetened beverages per day
This WellSpot promotes the 5-2-1-0 program in at least two ways in its facility.
