After surgery

Hello, my father will soon have a cardiac surgery. I would like to know if there is a risk for him if my son comes to see him at hospital after surgery (my cystic fibrosis son, 3 years old, has had no bacteria on throat swabs for a long time). If yes, for how long there is a risk ?
Thank you
Dear Questioner,
There is no particular bacterial risk for your father if your son goes to see him after surgery. It would be better to avoid kissing if your son has a cold, as also for you by the way.
Nevertheless, most of hospitals forbid the presence of children in the hospital rooms essentially to prevent infections. However, when your father will be able to go to the hospital hall, your son could see him.
Sincerely yours
Dr Isabelle Danner-Boucher
