    We don’t have our HSCT patients wear an N95 mask.

    Hello everyone,

    Just curious as to whether you have your BMT patients wear an N95 mask?

    If so:

    1. What brand/type of N95 mask do you use?
    2. When do the patients wear the mask? When do they stop/no longer need to?
    3. What about the AML count recovery patients who are also very immunocompromised?

    Any information is appreciated.  Please attach any related literature, policies, etc. if available.

    Thank you in advance,
