If you're undergoing cancer treatment at Nebraska Medicine you have access to our 24/7 Infusion Center, which serves as both a treatment center and 24/7 urgent-care facility specifically for cancer patients, a rare offering in the region.
Preventing and treating side effects is an important part of cancer treatment and our team works closely with you to minimize them. If you experience symptoms such as fever, infection, pain, uncontrolled nausea or vomiting or other side effects of treatments at any time during the day or night, you can come directly to the Infusion Center — bypassing the emergency room — for evaluation and treatment and, if needed, admission to the hospital.
You can have additional peace of mind knowing that your cancer care team is a phone call away and you will receive a continuum of care from doctors who understand your conditions.
The Infusion Center is also an environment safe for immune-compromised cancer patients. The after-hours on-call team can be reached at 402.559.5600.
