People with weak immune systems should avoid visitors who have a cold or another infection. Cancer patients with a compromised immune system are at risk of infection as a result of their underlying disease or from chemotherapy. Viruses and other infectious illnesses can spread from person to person through close contact and the water droplets that a person expels into the air when they cough or sneeze.
Make sure you are healthy before planning a visit. The last thing you want is to feel responsible if the patient becomes ill because you passed the infection onto them.
Always wash your hands, use hand sanitisers and cough or sneeze into a tissue or your sleeve. We have included a purse size Thank you hand sanitiser in Kit for Cancer case for an extra care.
