We have a no sibling policy. However, if they show up with sibs, we look at it on a case by case basis, if the patient MUST be seen that day and I discuss with the team. Also, if we know ahead of time there is childcare issues, we also address those with the team (EX. coming in for a physical only, can be rescheduled; if chemotherapy or infusion, we will consider sibs). IF sibs come, they must stay in the room with patient and keep mask on. Hope this helps.

Hi all- Looking for input as to what other clinics policies are on siblings being allowed at clinic and/or infusion appointments. If you do NOT allow siblings, how do you manage barriers that families have in finding childcare for other sibs? Any other input, ideas, etc. are welcome! Thank you!
