We have a smaller institution. Our outpatient clinic is open 8-12 on Saturday only for non emergent patients who are known to tolerate infusions well. We share with other services and have one chair for our Pediatric Heme/Onc kids for transfusion, or rarely, pre approved chemotherapy. It is staffed by 1 RN, 1 tech and 1 MD or APP.

We are currently open on Saturday’s only. All of our infusion staff rotate through weekend coverage and we do have some nurses who participate in our institute’s weekend program. Our clinic is open only for infusion and for 8 hours vs M-F we are open 10.5 hours. The infusions are restricted to multi-day chemotherapy, transfusions, antibiotics, and lab draws. On average we see about 10 patients.
