    Hello Caryl,

     

    Here are my answers:

     

    Allowing parents/caregivers to eat in room while in for BMT? Yes we allow our parents/caregivers to eat in the patients’ room.   

    Do you allow parents/caregivers to use patient shower and bathroom while they are in for BMT.  Yes we do.

     

    Let me know if you have any additional questions.

     

    Caroline

    Hello, I was looking to see what your institutions guidelines/policies are in regards to allowing parents/caregivers to eat in room while in for BMT? Do you have a lounge are on unit for parents/caregivers that can assist with letting them eat there?
    Do you allow parents/caregivers to use patient shower and bathroom while they are in for BMT.  Any information would be appreciated. 
    Thanks
