The approach is interdisciplinary and family-centered. A pharmacist is available on the unit 16 hours per day and dietitians and social workers are very involved in patient care.
The relatively long length of stay on the unit and readmissions for post-transplant care enable nurses to establish rewarding relationships with patients and families.
The unit serves adult oncology patients receiving chemotherapy or high dose chemotherapy, with or without bone marrow/stem cell transplant, and undergoing complex medication and blood product administration.
A physician's assistant is on the unit 24 hours for needed medical orders and oversight of the treatment plan. A general oncology service resident is available 8-12 hours a day in-house and by phone 24 hours a day. BMT and general oncology patients who need critical care are transferred to the ICU.
