This message has been cross posted to the following Discussions: APHON Open Forum and Bone Marrow Transplant . ——————————————- We are looking to institute a standard exercise program for our BMT inpatient population. At this point in time, we do not allow our allogeneic transplant patients to leave their rooms after Day 0, which hinders their ability to walk around the unit and be active. Could you please answer these few questions for me to get a better understanding of how other institutions handle this issue.
1. What kind of isolation do you use for allogeneic transplant? Protective with + pressure room
2. When do you start it? day -1
3. Do you allow patients to leave their rooms? not until evidence of count recovery
4. When the patients do have to leave their room, do you use any precautions? Mask
5. Do you have any standard exercise programs for your transplant patients? we do have exercise bikes on the unit but not a set schedule and PT/OT is consulted to visit the pt. M-F
