Do the smoking behaviors of physicians and nurses affect patients' perceptions of the trust and effectiveness of these health professionals?
In this exploratory study, a 40-item questionnaire was given to patients discharged from an Air Force hospital during a 4-week period.
The survey resulted in 116 usable questionnaires from 40 patients who had never smoked, 44 who no longer smoked, and 32 who still smoked.
Analyses of variance in the replies to the questionnaire indicated that nonsmokers felt strongly about health professionals not modeling unhealthy behaviors, while smokers indicated they had no opinion.
