Reply To: Refrigerator use for families and patients
We do not have refrigerators in patient rooms. Many years ago, our rehab unit had small refrigerators in rooms; however, the temperature and food expiration monitoring/recording became too big of a regulatory liability.

We have small refrigerators in the rooms at BCH. The temperature is centrally monitored. They are cleaned between patients. They only fit extra drinks or small items fo the patients. We have a large refrigerator for parent food in the nourishment room.
