The Bone Marrow Transplant unit is a twelve bed, private room facility that also includes a family room, kitchen and playroom for our patients.
The family room is furnished to accommodate two or more visitors at a time, so the UMMC BMT visitor’s policy can be followed.
Our family room has a comfortable sitting area with a large screen TV to provide a relaxing atmosphere for our patients and family members to enjoy during visitation.
The kitchen includes a refrigerator, two freezers, microwave, conventional toaster oven, blenders, coffee pot, ice machine and dish washer for the patient’s and caregiver’s use.
The kitchen is stocked with staples like seasonings, milk, yogurt, juices, popsicles and ice cream. Patients may bring favorite food items to prepare meals to help adequate intake.
The Laundry Room has two washer/dryer units. Laundry detergent and Clorox are supplied. We ask that the washer/dryer unit be cleaned after each use with cleaning products supplied.
All patient rooms have an ante room provided for those entering the rooms to wash their hands before entering.
All rooms are designed similarly, with adequate closet and storage space to accommodate the patient during their stay.
Each room is furnished with a sleeper sofa for the caregiver and visitors.
Sleeper sofas feature drawers underneath where personal items may be stored.
The lavatory is provided in the room to promote adequate handwashing. A private restroom adjoins the room.
The play room has age appropriate furnishings and toys. It is also set up appropriately for teacher/student tutoring if necessary. Per policy, the room is cleaned after each use.
