Reply To: Refrigerator use for families and patients
No, we do not have refrigerators in patient rooms or adjoining rooms. Many years ago we discussed this option for either food and/or specimens, but were unable to come to consensus regarding infection control policies and potential safety concerns re: cross-contamination.
Thank you, Nancy Noonan

Do any of your BMT units house a small refrigerator in the patient room and/or in an adjoining parent room? If so, any infection control policies that you follow?
