Smokefree Health Care Facilities

A Chart of Applicable Laws and Regulations in California

The laws and regulations applying to long term health care facilities in California are complex, particularly the laws about smoking. Some facilities are actually required to provide a patient smoking area, while other facilities may already be required by law to be smokefree.

If your long term care facility is interested in implementing a smokefree policy, this flowchart will help you figure out what laws and regulations apply and how the facility may proceed. We are funded to help California health care facilities implement smokefree policies — contact us for assistance!
