Most cancer chemotherapies can be administered safely and effectively in hospitals. However, in certain clinical conditions such as acute leukemia, known hypersensitivity reactions, or comorbidities, an inpatient stay becomes medically necessary as they require patient monitoring or complex administration over multiple days. With the best oncologists in Kottakkal and a full range of in-house support facilities, we provide an environment of care and competence to enable speedy recovery at nominal costs.
Chemotherapy Day Care
For many minor procedures or treatments, patients can avoid overnight hospitalization. Our Chemotherapy Daycare is a well-equipped facility that allows patients to walk home the same day of treatment. The Daycare unit here is one of the best in Kerala, staffed by experienced oncologists and nurses in Kottakkal. Here, we offer follow-up treatments, blood transfusions, and patient teaching and counseling related to side effects, dosages, and after-chemo care.
Patients with cancer are at high risk for acute life-threatening illnesses that require ICU admission. The indications can be cancer-related (eg, critical organ infiltration), treatment-related (eg, sepsis, drug toxicity), or due to comorbid illnesses (eg, kidney or heart failure). Almas Hospital is one of Kerala's multi-specialty healthcare providers. At Almas, the Oncology Intensive Care Unit is at the core of many life-saving treatments. Here, patients are monitored round the clock in sterile environments by the best oncologists in Kottakkal, specialist nurses, respiratory therapists, and counselors that are on call to assist with emergencies.
