OLIVEIRA, Renata Marques de  and  FUREGATO, Antonia Regina Ferreira. Nursing perceptions and experiences regarding smoking bans in a psychiatric hospital. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2021, vol.17, n.4, pp. 63-73. ISSN 1806-6976.

OBJECTIVE: to learn about the experience of nursing professionals in the implementation of the smoking ban in a psychiatric hospital. METHOD: a qualitative study was carried out with 73 nursing professionals from a psychiatric hospital in São Paulo's countryside, using Grounded Theory as a methodological reference and Symbolic Interactionism as a theoretical reference. There were 1260 hours of participant observation with field diary records. The data were analyzed from the open, axial and selective coding. RESULTS: different facets of the smoking ban were observed, such as insecurity, pessimism, resistance and boycott, especially in the private internment unit. However, many nursing professionals supported the ban when they saw the benefits to patients. FINAL CONSIDERATIONS: the process of implementing the smoking ban was accompanied by difficulties, but it proved to be a viable intervention. Professionals who were initially against the ban began to support it.
