In conclusion, the nurse caring for the patient with cancer must be acutely aware of the risk of infection. Many interventions are used in attempts to minimize or prevent infection. Once the patient becomes neutropenic, the risk of life-threatening infection increases dramatically. All nursing care is focused on treating infection and supporting the patient until bone marrow function returns.
