No more two-year-old National Geographics! Women’s College Hospital has joined the ranks of health care environments banning magazines in their waiting room. Patients can still bring their own reading materials but are asked not to leave them behind. The hospital believes banning waiting room reading material will cut down on the spread of infectious disease. It will be interesting to see whether the ban will also include hospital leaflets and newsletters.
