    • Questions to ask:
      • Has the visitor had symptoms (within the past 24 hours) of a communicable infectious disease, such as a fever, upper respiratory illness, flu-like illness, or gastro-intestinal illness?
      • Has the visitor had a recent exposure to anyone with Chicken pox or other communicable disease?
      • Does the visitor have an active Shingles rash?
      • Has the visitor received (within the last 6 weeks) a live attenuated Varicella Zoster vaccine?If so, does the visitor have any kind of rash?
    • Other Isolation Guidelines:
      • No children < 12 years of age in room
      • Only 2 visitors at a time and limit visitors to 3-4 consistent people during transplant
      • Keep the door closed at ALL TIMES.

    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
