The Day Care Service was established as far back as 1984. At that time nurses prepared and administered the chemotherapy. Today, chemotherapy is prepared by specially trained pharmacists and technicians in a designated sterile compounding suite.
The Day Care facility is managed by a two clinical nurse managers one of which is a clinical expert with a Masters in Cancer Nursing.
Unlike many facilities, nurses who work in Day Care all have a Graduate Diploma in Cancer Nursing or are undertaking the academic programme, which creates a very dynamic environment, were the latest treatment options are discussed and administered. Notwithstanding the level of knowledge and expertise, the staff are friendly, approachable and welcoming.
The custom-designed and spacious unit, which overlooks Dublin Bay, is equipped with comfortable reclining treatment chairs, with individual flat screen televisions and audio visual extras. Private consultation rooms are available along with isolation rooms, and patients are reviewed by their consultant at each treatment session. On a lighter note, tea, coffee and biscuits are also available with a light lunch served daily at noon.
