Fragrance Control at BWH
It is the responsibility of every BWH employee to follow the hospital’s fragrance control policy and refrain from using fragrant products, such as perfumes, colognes and soaps. Fragrances can cause great discomfort, and severe reactions in some cases, for staff and patients with sensitivities, allergies or other medical conditions. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org to review the policy.
