What to Expect
The Day Of Infusion
Our experienced staff will ensure that you are comfortable in our infusion suite prior to your infusion. We welcome patients to bring any comfort materials they may need. Genesis Pain Clinic also offers pillows, blankets, eye masks, and ear plugs to all patients receiving infusions in the event someone does not bring something of their own. During your infusion, you will be placed in a relaxing environment.
Following your infusion, you will be monitored for forty minutes to ensure that no nausea or other side effects have set in from the infusion. As a principle and in the interest of your long-term care, we will communicate the success of your treatment to your psychiatrist and ensure that all necessary members of your care team are informed about the success of your infusion.
