Home infusion therapy services offer our patients a comprehensive and innovative source of health care options, in the comfort of their home. Alleviating long and unnecessary stays in the hospital, our home infusion team administers intravenous (IV) therapy and treatment in a safe and comfortable setting.
In simple terms, infusion therapy refers to the process in which patients receive medications via needles or catheters in a vein. Receiving this care at home rather than a healthcare facility or other care setting is a more cost-effective option, and is referred to as “home infusion therapy.” medications or fluids are administering directly into the bloodstream through a needle or catheter usually intravenously (IV). It can also be given epidural, intramuscular, and subcutaneously.
Registered nurse must do all intravenous therapy which can include:
· LPN may do intradermal, intramuscular, and subcutaneous injections.
