Day care chemotherapy is a novel concept in cancer care, and as one of the best cancer hospitals in India, HCG has thoroughly understood its importance and strives to make it easily accessible to patients. In many cases, chemotherapy patients do not even require a bed; they can receive treatment on a private couch or in the common lounge while reading, watching television, or using their phones.
As a specialised Day Care Chemotherapy Centre, HCG has a 360-degree approach to promoting wellness among patients undergoing chemotherapy. Patients can consult skilled and experienced medical oncologists in an ambient treatment setting, and the cancer care team also includes specialised onconurses and RMOs.
The medical oncologists at HCG Day Care Chemotherapy Centre will discuss treatment, possible side effects, and follow-ups with patients and their caregivers to provide sufficient information. With personalised treatment plans, they focus on delivering the right treatment the first time.
HCG’s Day Care Chemotherapy Centre is a unique facility with spacious and comforting treatment and waiting areas. Every patient's chemotherapy sessions are well planned, and they are assigned a bed or recliner as soon as they arrive.
Onconurses are specialised nurses skilled in taking care of cancer patients. They are trained to provide extra care and attention during these challenging times.
At the Day Care Chemotherapy Centre, patients can receive treatment and go home on the same day. Specialists are now able to deliver chemotherapy more conveniently and less dauntingly for patients. This centre can also deliver novel oncology therapies such as immunotherapy and hormonal therapy.
Each session may take between 1-8 hours, depending upon the treatment plan devised, and the patients may leave once the session is over. This way, the routine activities of the patients are not hampered.
HCG Day Care Chemotherapy Centre aims to reduce the travel burdens for patients who visit far-off hospitals for their chemotherapy sessions. By bringing care closer to home, we are helping patients attend their treatment sessions comfortably.
Our chemotherapy clinic focuses only on chemotherapy or other medical oncology sub-specialities, such as hormone therapy and immunotherapy. The entire procedure, from registration to discharge, is hassle-free, flexible, and seamless.
By delivering the treatment on an outpatient/day care basis and bringing care closer to home, HCG Day Care Centre makes cancer treatment more economical for the patients.
Chemotherapy patients, in most cases, are immunocompromised. Despite infection control protocols in place, hospitals are associated with certain infection risks. However, this is not the case at HCG Day Care Centre since it only caters to chemotherapy patients and follows strict hygienic practices.
Cancer patients tend to recover better in the comfort of their homes. Having near and dear ones around can positively impact the patient’s outlook towards the disease and treatment. This positive outlook supports better treatment response and faster recovery.
