The Brandon RHA is a Scent Controlled and Smoke Free Environment!
The Brandon RHA is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment.
Strong scents in the air can trigger asthma attacks, allergies and other medical conditions.
- Do not wear scented products (aftershaves, perfumes, lotions) to work or to visit.
Choose flower arrangements that have little or no scent.
Bring only foil type balloons, because of latex allergies.
Do not smoke in any Brandon RHA buildings or on the grounds.
Thank you for making our patients stay
