    We do not have visitor limitations for our clinic. There are limitations for our inpatient ward during influenza season, but the clinic is open to as many family members that want to attend the clinic visit.  Occasionally, we have child life and volunteers to help with siblings but not always.  We have not really had any issues.  An adult is required to stay with the minor patient during the visit/infusion.

    We do not have a policy that restricts visitors. We welcome siblings as we feel that it helps siblings cope when they are able to participate. During the summer months we use summer volunteers to assist with playroom activities and control.

    thank you
