Clinic Infusion Room Staff
Throughout your child’s therapy, they may require multiple infusions. An infusion is one way to give therapies when a child needs to receive them through an IV (intravenously). The therapy may be blood products such as a transfusion of red blood cells or platelets; chemotherapy to treat cancer; biotherapies; immunoglobulin; antibiotics or medicines for other conditions.
Our Infusion Room is staffed with pediatric nurses specialized in giving these infusions. They are all certified in giving chemotherapy and biotherapies. Our nurses are caring and dedicated to providing your child with the best care possible.
