    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 have the same guidlines… all patients between 8-4 M-F (no holidays) will come to the clinic. All other times they will go directly to the ED.

    Hello,

    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?

    Thank you,
