Frequently Asked Questions

How do I place a prescription order?

Prescriptions can be ordered by calling our pharmacy at 402-420-7000. A pharmacy staff member will be happy to assist you in processing your order.

Patients may choose to leave a voicemail when calling after business hours. When leaving a message, it is requested that you leave your name, date of birth and the prescription number.

Patients wishing to check their status may call the pharmacy during regular business hours for an update. Our pharmacy will provide regular updates to its patients with regard to prescription status.

What is an adverse drug reaction?

Adverse drug reaction (ADR, adverse drug effect) is a broad term referring to unwanted, uncomfortable or dangerous effects that a drug may have.

A side effect is an imprecise term often used to refer to a drug’s unintended effects that occur within the therapeutic range. Because all drugs have the potential for adverse drug reactions, risk-benefit analysis (analyzing the likelihood of benefit vs. risk of ADRs) is necessary whenever a drug is prescribed. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may also report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Who do I call with prescription questions?

If you have questions or concerns about the medications that you have been prescribed at Cancer Partners, contact our Pharmacy team at (402) 420-7000.

What can I do with my leftover medications?

You are not advised to keep leftover medications—instead, learn how to get rid of them. Please do NOT flush leftover medications. Properly dispose of them by returning them to Cancer Partners’ Pharmacy or another participating pharmacy. Or call 1-800-222-1222. Nebraska MEDS is a coalition of state and community partners dedicated to educating patients about safe disposal of prescription and over-the-counter medications.

Oral chemotherapy should be returned to your oncology provider for proper disposal. You should never throw out or flush leftover chemotherapy. Also, ask a member of your health care team ahead of time if you should return the empty containers or any other chemotherapy waste to the doctor’s office for safe disposal.

How do I access medications in case of an emergency or disaster?

The pharmacy will advertise the closing of the pharmacy due to an accident, natural disaster or interruption in utility services. In the event of an emergency or a disaster, pharmacy staff will coordinate care with providers and patients to ensure that a pharmacy of the patient’s choice will be contacted to fill his/her medication. For specialty and limited access prescriptions, Cancer Partners Pharmacy will partner with a secondary (local) and tertiary (non-local) specialty pharmacy. The tertiary specialty pharmacy will be located outside of the state of Nebraska if an accident, natural disaster or interruption of services affects other pharmacies within the same region as Cancer Partners Pharmacy.

Can I request a prescription substitution?

The pharmacist is allowed, by law, to substitute a drug product that is both chemically equivalent and bioequivalent except under certain circumstances specified under Nebraska state statutes. A patient may request “brand name only” medication to be dispensed. This request must be made in writing and signed by the patient or caregiver.

How do I handle medication recalls?

If you become aware of a recall that involves a medication that you currently take, or have been taking, call the pharmacy as soon as possible to find out whether a replacement is needed. Further guidance will also be provided by a pharmacist regarding potential harm and the process of returning and/or disposing of the medication.

How can I obtain medications not available at the pharmacy?

In the event that a medication ordered by your physician is not available through Cancer Partners Pharmacy, the pharmacy staff will inform your provider of the available location(s) where the drug can be procured. The pharmacy will also inform the patient where the medication is available and will provide the appropriate contact information for the dispensing pharmacy.

How can I transfer a prescription to another pharmacy?

A patient wanting to transfer their prescription must have their new pharmacy contact Cancer Partners Pharmacy directly to arrange the transfer. Once the prescription transfer is made, the original prescription through Cancer Partners Pharmacy will be canceled. A new prescription from the provider will be required if the decision is made to resume filling through Cancer Partners Pharmacy.

How do I report concerns?

The patient has the right to freely voice grievances and recommends changes in care or services without fear of reprisal or unreasonable interruption of services. Service, equipment and billing complaints will be communicated to management and upper management. All concerns will be handled in a professional manner. All logged concerns will be investigated, acted upon, and responded to in writing or by telephone by a manager within a reasonable amount of time after the receipt of the concern. If there is no satisfactory resolution of the concern, the next level of management will be notified progressively and up to the president or owner of the company.

How do I report an adverse reaction?

Almost all medicines can have the potential to cause side effects.

Always let your doctor know if your side effects are severe, especially if you are finding it difficult to stay on your current treatment plan. The pharmacy will provide you with symptom management education for commonly experienced adverse reactions related to oral chemotherapy.

If you experience any of the following information your healthcare team immediately:

  • Shortness of breath or chest pain (if you have extreme chest pain, call 911)
  • Fever higher than 101°F or shaking chills
  • Excessive bleeding or bruising
  • Irregular or rapid heartbeat
  • Sudden change in your mental status- confusion, slurred speech or other symptoms

The following symptoms can be reported to your healthcare team within 24 hours:

  • Vomiting that is unrelieved by prescribed medications
  • Severe constipation or diarrhea or blood in the stool
  • Painful or frequent urination or blood in the urine
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Soreness, redness, swelling, pus, or drainage at your catheter site
  • Pain in a new place or pain that is not relieved by your pain medication
  • Headache that is not relieved by over-the-counter medications
  • Inability to eat for more than 24 hours and continued weight loss
  • Mouth sores that interfere with your ability to eat or drink
  • Nasal congestion, drainage, cough

  • One or more of the following signs of dehydration
  • Dry, cracked lips or sticky tongue
  • Increased thirst and/or decreased urination
  • Increased weakness/dizziness/lightheadedness
What is the proper handling of oral chemotherapy?

Oral chemotherapy options have advanced significantly over the past few years and it’s estimated the use will more than double in the next several years. One estimate puts 25 percent of anticancer agents in the research pipeline as “designated for oral administration”. The increased use of oral chemotherapy is moving the administration of cancer treatment from a medical facility to patients’ homes. While this is convenient for patients, it can lead to adherence and safety issues. Patients and caregivers are now responsible for ensuring the correct medication and dose at the correct time. This leads to the importance of education regarding the safe handling of oral chemotherapy before and during treatment.

How do I obtain a refill?

Medication refills can be picked up from the pharmacy during business hours of 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Thursday and 8:30 am to 4:00 pm Friday.

Medication refills may also be picked up off-site at one of our Cancer Partners clinics during regular business hours. Arrangements for off-site clinic pick-up need to be made at least 2 days in advance with a member of the pharmacy staff.

Prescriptions picked up at an off-site location must be acquired on the day agreed upon by the patient and pharmacy staff. Medications left at the clinic after business hours will be returned to the pharmacy the same business day. When necessary, Cancer Partners Pharmacy will arrange home prescription delivery. The pharmacy will coordinate home delivery with the patient to ensure the recipient is available to sign for the delivery at an agreed-upon location.
