Who can order Outpatient Infusion Services?
A physician’s order is required for treatment. If your physician is not a member of SCH medical staff and you should need further medical care while receiving this treatment, our hospitalist would be able to assist with any treatment, complications, etc. This physician will also be able to communicate with your primary physician if it becomes necessary. Our ER physicians can order your first therapy, but you will need to have a staff physician as your primary provider for any additional treatments.
