In brief: Depends

...On the cancer, the treatment, and the general condition of the patient.
As a rule, we would like for a patient to spend as much time as possible at home and to be as functional as possible. Unfortunately, that is not always possible, especially with intense chemo programs like the ones used for leukemia.
