Infusion therapy can help the immune system fight off COVID-19. If your physician has prescribed infusion therapy for your COVID disease, follow these helpful reminders when you come for your appointment:
Masks are required for our patients, visitors, employees and staff. Although the CDC masking guidelines have eliminated the need for fully vaccinated people to wear a mask in most places, health care settings still require masks. Thank you for wearing a mask when you visit us.
We require you to provide a driver for your appointment. Your driver will deliver you to your appointment and pick you up from your appointment approximately four (4) hours later. No visitors are allowed in the National Jewish Health treatment unit.
When you and your driver arrive, please stay in your car. Clinical staff will greet you; please tell them that you are here for COVID-19 infusion treatment. The staff member will notify the unit that you are here. Please remain in your car until a member of the infusion center team comes to your car to escort you to the unit.
When you arrive at the Infusion Center for COVID-19 Care a medical provider will visit with you to understand your health history and to answer questions you may have regarding your treatment.
During your recovery period the nursing team will help you contact your driver with an estimate of when your driver may pick you up. You will be escorted to your car by the care team staff.
You will be scheduled for a follow-up telemedicine appointment prior to leaving National Jewish Health. National Jewish Health will also provide confirmation of your treatment back to your referring physician.
