The infusion nurse in the treatment suite will review your health history and assess your physical and emotional status. The nurse will review your labs and any recent tests you have had. They will collaborate with the physician about your treatment plan. The infusion nurse will administer your chemotherapy treatment, other medications and intravenous fluids. The nurse will continue to educate you about the medications you are receiving, and identify and manage any side effects that you are having.

We are physicians, hospitals and communities working together to help you live better.
