Tobacco butting out of hospital grounds
Tobacco is being snuffed out completely at the hospital and a couple of nursing homes in the area.
Effective January 1, 2011, Douglas County Hospital, Knute Nelson and Galeon of Osakis will become tobacco-free grounds.
PrimeWest Health is also working toward implementing a tobacco-free grounds policy and will have an effective date in the near future, according to Douglas County Public Health.
