Intravenous (IV) Therapies
It is becoming increasingly more common for patients to undergo infusion therapies in the comfort of their own home. Infusion therapy may be required for infections that are unresponsive to oral antibiotics, cancer and related pain, dehydration, gastrointestinal diseases, and more. Specialty infusions are used as a part of treatment plans for conditions such as hemophilia, congestive heart failure, multiple sclerosis, and others.
NurseRegistry provides clinical and support services to individuals in need of infusion therapy. We match patients with skilled nurses experienced in a variety of different infusion therapies, resulting in shortened hospital stays, patient autonomy, and the elimination of visits to infusion clinics.
After a hospital stay, discharging home can be stressful on multiple levels. There are types of infusion therapies where a patient, along with a family member or caregiver, may need to be independent in administration. Our nurses can provide extra help and reduce stress by administering infusion treatments or providing supplemental care.
Teaching visits are an invaluable tool in helping a patient or caregiver feel more confident in their abilities to move forward independently with infusions. Our nurses can provide teaching visits or ongoing support, depending on your needs and comfort level.
Infusion therapy services include:
- Immunoglobulin treatment for post-transplant or autoimmune patients
- Antibiotic treatment for patients with Lyme disease or severe infections
- TPN – IV nutritional therapy for patients with GI disorders
