Farewell 5200. Tour of the unit 1 of 3

Tracy says I need to post on the blog more, so I’m going to start with a three-part series tour of “5200”, the Duke Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant unit, where Maggie has lived for the last 45 days, and I’ve come to think of as my second home.

Other than Tracy, Maggie, Baba, and I, no one goes through the airlock to see Maggie unless they’re either medial personel, or under my direct supervision.

I go in and out of the airlock all the time shuttling supplies, so contact precaution is very important for me, and very stressful because I could be bringing in unwanted pathogens. The airlock is where I take a few moments to meditate and mentally ramp up my contact precaution mechanics.
