    We allow children > than 2 to visit.  They are screened and then can visit the unit, but only in the patient room.  They can’t be in the common areas or the activity room.  The only exception is infant siblings who are breast feeding.  They can be here 24 hours.

    We are currently reviewing our policy regarding children visitors to the BMT Unit.  I would really like to hear what type of policy other institutions have regarding any restrictions or things they allow.

    Thank you
