Infusion Therapy

Infusion therapy involves the administration of medication through a needle or catheter.  It is prescribed when a patient’s condition is so severe that it cannot be treated effectively by oral medications.  Typically, “infusion therapy” means that a drug is administered intravenously, but the term also may refer to situations where drugs are provided through other non-oral routes, such as intramuscular injections. Home IV therapy is provided by highly qualified Registered Nurses (RNs).  This service provides many benefits including allowing the client to avoid lengthy hospital says as well as to transition to home while continuing therapy. Some home IV services include (but not limited to):

  • Hydration
  • Antibiotics
  • Pain Management
  • Total Parentaral Nutrition (TPN)
  • Immune Globulin
  • Anti-Hemophiliac Factor
  • Specialty Injectables
  • Central Line Care
  • Labs
