Any patient with anemia from ongoing blood loss should be admitted to the hospital for further evaluation and treatment. Patients with isolated anemia that is chronic or newly diagnosed and not related to blood loss do not necessarily require admission if they are asymptomatic, hemodynamically stable, have minimal comorbid disease, and close follow-up can be arranged. Patients newly diagnosed with anemia who also have abnormalities in the white blood cell or platelet count should have immediate hematologic consultation and probable admission.
