Hospital banning conversations about Trump, Clinton in its cardiac rehab gym

From Becker’s:

A New York hospital is banning patients from getting into heated debates about the election for fear the stress will negatively impact their health.

Hot pink safety notices adorn the walls of Southampton (N.Y.) Hospital’s cardiopulmonary rehabilitation gym that read, “Due to the fact that we have patients with heart conditions we cannot allow political debates in the gym,” The East Hampton Star reports.

Jessica Swiatocha, a nurse practitioner and the manager of cardiopulmonary rehab and wellness services at Southampton Hospital, told the newspaper she and her colleagues decided to implement the rule about a month ago after receiving patient complaints about the spirited discussions taking place in the gym.
