Undercover teams bust Shanghai hospitals for violating new anti-smoking rules

About 7% of Shanghai's hospitals and health facilities have been found to be in violation of new anti-smoking policies in an investigation by undercover 'smoker detectives'. Secret visits to 437 health establishments in the city found that 29 were not complying with the new rules that stipulate a series of anti-smoking measures be put in place. The three main areas of non-compliance were lack of anti-smoking materials such as posters and signs; staff allowed to be smoking unchallenged in non-smoking public areas such as doorways and stairwells, and the lack of indoor designated smoking areas.
