We are currently working on direct admit guidlines for outside the 8-4 hours. So far we direct admit:
-Known ITP from MD office
-Kids that need PRBCs and PLTs and will be short stays
-Palliative/End of life patients for pain
Kids under question are those that need to come from CT scanner or MRI…..This is a little grey and we are working on this. Does anyone have experience with this??

We are trying to standardize a policy in which we can better accomdate urgent and emergency visits in our Heme Onc Outpatient clinics. Does anyone have policies around handling unexpected add-on and emergency visits such as Fever/Neutropenia, Bleeding, etc. Do these include guidelines for type of emergency visit and timing to clinic?
