At each visit patients receive intravenous medications and the necessary supplies, and they are monitored by the registered nurse and the clinical pharmacist to ensure the success of the treatment.

IV Infusion Center

Patients come to the physician office-based infusion center as an alternative to receiving intravenous therapies in a home health care setting. The center is conveniently located in the physician’s office, and patients return according to individualized treatment plans, usually once or twice a week to have blood work drawn, dressing changes, and to undergo evaluation by the care team and physician. At each visit, patients are provided on-going medications and supplies along with follow-up monitoring to ensure continued treatment success.

Setting

The infusion center contains private, curtained modules that are equipped with a comfortable recliner lounge chair, color TV/VCR, and other patient comfort items. The center provides privacy while allowing the nurse to observe each patient individually.

Diseases commonly requiring infusion therapy include infections that are unresponsive to oral antibiotics, cancer and cancer-related pain, dehydration, gastrointestinal diseases or disorders which prevent normal functioning of the gastrointestinal system, and more.
“Specialty infusion therapy” is a term in use when “specialty” infusion medications are administered. However, it also is used to reflect the highly specialized services and level of care that an infusion pharmacy provides to its infusion therapy patients.
