What is home infusion?
Home infusion therapy is the intravenous (IV) administration of medications, lipids, electrolytes, or other fluids ordered by a physician, performed at home by the patient or primary caregiver.
How does it work?
Our team works with your physician to create a care plan according to your needs. This plan specifies what, when, and how often home infusion therapy should be administered based on your medical history.
Once the plan is created and the order is received, our team of nurses will take the time to train you or your caregiver on all you need to know to perform the infusion therapy at home. Our team of experienced professionals will teach you about your specific therapy that has been ordered, possible side effects, the best time to do the therapy, and more. We also offer enteral/ tube feedings therapy. Periodic home visits as ordered will also help ensure you have all the skills and tools you need.
We'll be with you step by step, and we are available to answer any questions you might have.
How can home infusion help?
Home infusion therapy is most commonly ordered for patients whose illness has not been successfully managed by oral medications. This can include infections, cancer, gastrointestinal diseases, dehydration, immune deficiencies, and more.
