    We don’t. And on the same side of things, do any of you put the children in cytotoxic precautions and treat the child as such? I made a different thread about this and had a couple responses..but I’m definitely curious.

    Good Morning!

    At your institution, do you instruct your patients with sickle cell disease or their family members to wear gloves when taking hydroxyurea?
