Infusion Services at Ochsner

Depending on a patient’s situation and the particular drug, he or she may get chemotherapy once a day, once a week or once a month. Chemotherapy is often given in cycles. A patient may, for example, get therapy for six weeks, and then have time to rest before the next cycle begins. Whether treatment is for cure, control or palliative care, this dedicated team will support you and your family during this difficult time. The nurses have completed advanced classes and preceptorship programs to work in this area.
