We are here for you!

Thursday, March 19, 2020  |  Filed under "NCS in the News"

We sincerely hope you, your family, and your friends are safe and healthy during these stressful times.

We want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to avoid reducing clinic hours as the COVID-19 coronavirus impacts our community.  We will remain open unless otherwise instructed by local public officials.

During this pandemic, we ask that you please keep your scheduled appointments.  If you are feeling ill, please let us know in advance so we can reschedule your appointment.

If you are sick with COVID-19 or think you may have been exposed to the virus, please reschedule your appointment and call the coronavirus hotline at 402.815.SICK.

We are continuing to follow the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other health organizations.  The plan we have in place protects the safety of our patients, their loved ones, and our employees.

Appointments
At this time, there is no disruption in our schedule and we look forward to seeing you!

Visitors
We are limiting guests to one per patient.  No children, pets, or other family members will be allowed to accompany patients into the building, waiting room, infusion suites, or exam rooms.

Screening
Anyone entering the building will be asked a series of screening questions and will have their temperature taken.  We thank you for your cooperation.

Cleanliness
Our standard cleaning procedures have always used EPA-certified cleaners to ensure top notch cleanliness in all of our clinics. In this heightened situation, we have implemented additional incremental cleaning protocols to increase the frequency of cleaning to ensure we minimize the risk of any germs or viruses.  This includes wiping down common surfaces, handwashing and disinfecting, gowns and masks.

Thank you for being a valued patient of Nebraska Cancer Specialists. We will continue to update you as the situation evolves. Please contact us with any questions.  We are here for you.
