Clean wagons


Most of our younger patients enjoy riding in wagons to their St. Jude appointments. We need your help to be sure that the wagons are as safe as they can be.

Wagons can carry harmful germs (bacteria and viruses). Re-using a wagon after another patient could expose your child to germs that could make him sick. The wagons are cleaned often to help keep your child from coming in contact with those germs.

After wagons have been cleaned by our staff, they are parked near Patient Services on the plaza level (basement) of the Patient Care Center. You will know a wagon is clean if it has a white piece of tape across it with the words “READY TO ROLL” printed in green.

 You can help us keep your child and other patients as safe as possible by following these guidelines.

  • When you can, return any used wagon to the Guest Services representative in the Patient Care Center lobby or Chili’s Care Center lobby. Please let someone at the Guest Services desk know you have returned it. This person will place a sign in the wagon that says it is dirty and needs to be cleaned.
  • If you are staying in Tri Delta Place, please keep your wagon with you for the length of your stay. You can take it to your room and use it until your stay is complete.
  • Wagons should not be removed from the St. Jude campus and taken to Target House or Ronald McDonald House, since we will be unable to clean them.
  • Only use clean wagons for your child. Please do not re-use a wagon after another patient unless it has been cleaned first. Clean wagons can be found near Patient Services on the Patient Care Center plaza level.


If you have questions about wagons at St. Jude, please talk to the guest service representative at either the Patient Care Center or Chili’s Care Center lobby desk or ask a Patient Services staff member.
