Answer

Patients with AML are best treated at a center whose staff has significant experience in the treatment of leukemia. Patients should be transferred to an appropriate (generally tertiary care) hospital if they are admitted to hospitals without appropriate blood product support, leukapheresis capabilities, or physicians and nurses familiar with the treatment of leukemia patients.
