Residents who are bed bound and want to smoke must be accompanied by a visitor who will supervise the resident during the entire time that they are smoking in the designated smoking area.
All smoking materials must be kept in the nursing station. Family may bring smoking materials with them into the facility, so long as smoking materials are not left in the room when family leaves.
