Answer

During the neutropenic phase, all visitors and personnel should wash their hands before entering the patient’s room.

In patients with thrombocytopenia, pay special attention to oral hygiene, with frequent rinsing and brushing of teeth only with a disposable oral swab. Such patients should avoid nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents and other medications that can inhibit platelet function. Make sure that these patients do not receive intramuscular injections while thrombocytopenic.

Patients should refrain from strenuous physical activity and should avoid potted plants and flowers. During chemotherapy, they should stay away from crowded public places and avoid contact with people with infectious diseases.
