Does NFPA permit exceptions to obstructions of egress?

For the purpose of socialization and safety of a patient in a healthcare environment can a patient in a wheel chair or bed (equipped with wheels) be permitted in a area even if it is in a path of egress?  I read in the Life Safety A 7.1.10.1 discusses temporary obstruction, is there any other references to this?
