In Reply We appreciate the response by Curley and Meyer to our Viewpoint titled “Family-Centered Care and High-Consequence Pathogens: Thinking Outside the Room”1 and the continued dialogue regarding family-centered care and high-consequence pathogens. We agree with the assertion that family-centered care and parental presence remain a vital component of pediatric health care delivery. As such, we take issue with the contention that infection control practices that promote safety are “inhumane.”
