Why does it take so long to get my chemo treatment?

There is a lot of care going in to the behind the scenes preparation of your chemotherapy treatment. Your pharmacy and nursing staff provide many services including built-in safety checks that ensure the right patient receives the right drug at the right dose at the right time. Our service also includes patient-specific preparation of every treatment. Treatments are made to order, only after labs, order, and product selection have been checked.  Most of our medications require special handling, both to protect the sterility of the product for patient safety and to protect the preparer and the facility from the toxicity of the product. Accuracy and safety is of the utmost importance in preparing your individualized treatment.
