DEDICATED CANCER INPATIENT SERVICES
On the fourth floor of IU Health Bloomington Hospital main campus, a 26-bed private room inpatient unit is dedicated to the care of cancer patients and their families.
The unit employs a modified team nursing model to meet both the physical and psychological needs of patients - using registered nurse oncology specialists, licensed practical nurses, and nursing assistants. The staff provides chemotherapy, as well as supportive educational and discharge planning services. Through multidisciplinary teams, patients also have access to other hospital resources during their stay, including Pastoral Services, Case Management/Social Work, Nutritional Services, Pharmacy, and Hospice. The oncology unit is designed with soothing colors and soft lighting to create a home-like atmosphere and offers 24-hour visitation.
