RSV

Specializes in NICU.

Our unit is looking at a policy for parents visiting their babies that are RSV positive. During this season we get PICU overflow and the parents usually stay overnight. Currently we have them mask and gown while in the room. Can some of you please share your policies?

This is practice in both our PICU and NICU as well

Droplet precautions all around. We don't take overflow thankfully.
