Putting Patients at Ease
The Infusion Center, part of the Good Health Center at MedStar Good Samaritan, provides patients with a caring, comfortable environment staffed by specially trained nurses. Each of the 11 infusion stations has a reclining chair and flat-screen television. Large windows offer views of the hospital campus, and food can be ordered for patients whose therapy lasts several hours.
In addition to patients with Crohn’s disease, the clinic treats people with other conditions, including:
- Heart failure
- Ulcerative colitis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Multiple sclerosis
The center’s nurses are all trained in critical care, which enables them to provide exceptional care to their patients. “We have a lot of experience working with people who have multiple medical issues,” says Pat Kelly, RN, BSN. “Our background really prepares us for troubleshooting problems and handling emergencies.”
Michael Blume, MD, a gastroenterologist on staff at MedStar Good Samaritan and Gentile’s physician, often refers patients to the Infusion Center. “We’ve all worked together for a long time, so we’re comfortable with each other and we trust each other,” Dr. Blume says.
“Our goal is ensuring that the medication is effectively and safely delivered. I know that when I send patients to the Infusion Center, they’ll be well taken care of.”
