Okay to visit sick patient?
Oct 26, 2001

My sister-in-law is in the hospital with terminal cancer and I was just advised that she could die within a week. I want to go visit her, but she also happens to have pnuemonia. As a person with AIDS, do I have any risk of catching her pnuemonia?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

You can safely visit your sister-in-law. Don't worry about it.
