Important Information to our Infusion Patients

As your infusion providers we want you to know that we are working hard to maintain a safe infusion environment.

Currently, we remain open so that we can ensure that all our patients can receive infusions.

It is the recommendation of our physicians that you continue to receive your infusions to avoid flare ups and prevent hospitalizations.

However, if you have a fever, respiratory symptoms (cough, sore throat, or shortness of breath), nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, or recent exposure to someone that has test positive for COVID-19 please call the infusion center to report these symptoms before coming in.

Please know that we are taking extra measures to ensure that we are decreasing exposure and reducing risk for all our patients and staff:

  • • We are prescreening all our patients the day prior to their infusion to assess for any symptoms of COVID-19 or for recent exposure
  • • Screening and triaging all infusion patients in a separate room when they enter the infusion center
  • • We are making sure to practice appropriate distancing of at least 6 feet
  • • We are infusing patients in separate rooms and/or only allowing two patients into the infusion room at a time

Additionally, all staff are being screened for any fevers, respiratory symptoms and other symptoms of COVID-19. If any staff has symptoms, they are not allowed to present to the infusion center.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to the infusion center at 410-616-7361 with any questions or concerns.
