Located on the Level 4 of Mercy Medical Center, the Perrine Oncology Inpatient Unit has distinguishing features designed to meet the special needs of cancer patients, including ongoing staff education and resources within the hospital to stay current with the latest in oncology-related care. Several nurses within Mercy have obtained oncology nurse certification. There is also the option of a double bed to allow a family to have closer contact during a patient's stay. Read more about the double bed initiative in this story featured in The Mercy Touch Magazine.
Studies have proven that patients’ length of stay is reduced, patients report less pain and smaller amounts of narcotics are used, and fewer medication errors are made in single-patient rooms.
