The registered nurses at the Infusion Center are specially trained and certified to give chemotherapy. They are required to pass the ONS Chemotherapy/Biotherapy test every two years after the initial two-day training course. Many of them have passed a national certification exam to become an oncology certified nurse (OCN). This certification demonstrates their knowledge and commitment to continuing education and expertise in their field.
We have pharmacists who specialize in oncology and infusions preparing medications on site for each individual patient as directed by an oncologist. Every patient is carefully monitored for the proper therapy and provided with drug information about potential interactions and side effects.
Families are encouraged to be with patients to participate in the education and care giving process. Light snacks and drinks are available for patients. Rooms are comfortable with lounge chairs and television available.
During your treatment, members of the Cancer Center health care team may visit you including: doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, receptionists, cancer care navigators, and others. This interaction ensures that patient and family needs are being met and allow us as a team to connect with our patients.
