Answer

Patients should be hospitalized for serious complications, such as severe bleeding, or for major surgical procedures, all which require complex interdisciplinary care including pharmacy and laboratory support. Constant clinical evaluation and laboratory monitoring ensure adequacy of product replacement, pain relief, and other supportive care. The hematologist must be centrally involved to coordinate care.
