    ANC <500, fever –> automatic admit
    ANC near 500, fever, clinically not well, likely admit

    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!
