    We are currently looking at our policies and guidelines for admissions and fever and neutopenia and looking at possible management in the home.

    I am wondering if any instuitions are not admitting appropriate neutropenic, febrile patient and if so, what is the criteria you use to keep them at home vs. hospital admission?

    Thank You!
