Regarding the comment about the smokers going off for a quick cigarette. I found a solution you may consider as it worked for me a treat. Being a non-smoker myself it bugged me that smokers were forever going off for a fag. Nobody to complain to as the ward manager was herself a 'Quick Fag Breaker'. So I decided I had had enough. Whenever my colleagues went for a quick fag break, when they returned, I went for a quick tea break. I can tell you it caused a great big stink, but I stuck it out, and the practice was seriously curtailed particularly when I was on duty.
