Infusion therapy guidelines

We recognize the unique needs of our infusion patients, and understand the desire to have family and friends present during treatments. However, there are times that visitors may be restricted at the discretion of our nursing staff. We will make every effort to be flexible with these guidelines.

  • Please, no perfume, colognes or fragrances.
  • Infusion times are highly specialized and individualized, running from 30 minutes to over six hours. Books, magazines, e-readers, crossword puzzles, word search games or Sudoku are welcome.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available. We respectfully ask that you mute or use earphones with all electronic devices like iPads, laptop computers, cell phones, electronic games and MP3 players, so they don’t disturb other patients.
  • Bring along handiwork such as knitting, crochet needlework, etc. 
  • The Infusion Center is kept on the cool side to decrease the chance of infection.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that is personally easy to adjust in case you become overly warm or cool.
  • Infusions are usually administered through an arm, so please wear clothing that is easy for the nurse to access.
  • Certain infusions may require that someone drive you home.
  • You may eat or drink as usual unless specific instructions are given.
  • Please take your daily medications as usual, especially blood pressure medications. Bring any home medications that you may need while you are receiving your infusion.
