Patients receive their
chemotherapy in one of our two infusion centers. For more than 25 years, our high treatment
volume consistently places us within the top 4 community practices in
California. Our treatment numbers exceed many university cancer centers.
Studies show that in medicine as in many things in life, when you know
a whole lot of something, you end up doing it exceedingly well. Our high
standards and high volume have enabled us to have the most skilled, experienced,
and caring team of chemotherapy nurses. All of our nurses are chemotherapy
certified and they take every step to ensure that your treatment is accurate,
safe and comfortable.
Our infusion centers are designed along the lines of a modern intensive
care unit. Each infusion station is in close proximity to an oncology
nurse work area, keeping patients easily visible. Each chemotherapy treatment
is monitored from start to finish. Not only do our patients appreciate
this extra attentiveness and security, they also enjoy the opportunity
to converse with and receive support from fellow patients. We ask that
family members not sit with patients during treatment in order to minimize
any distraction during the infusion. This permits our nurses to give our
patients their undivided attention.
All chemotherapy drugs are obtained directly from the pharmaceutical supplier
to ensure accuracy, purity, and proper handling to avoid degradation.
We do not permit intermediaries to supply or to mix any of our treatments.
All medications are stored in a state-of-the-art drug delivery system,
LYNX, for which Cancer Care served as an early developmental site. This
system is now widely used in hospitals and clinics to store important drugs.
Our pharmacy technicians and chemotherapy nurses mix every treatment on
premises following strict guidelines for accuracy and purity. Chemotherapy
infusions are ordered through a highly sophisticated computer system,
iKnowMed. These and other important safety measures allow us to be certain
that each treatment is prepared and given to exact specifications as directed
by the oncologists.
