Hire a Nurse for IV Therapy at Home
A private nurse can administer infusions in the home—a safe and convenient alternative to clinics.
Infusion Therapy at Home
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
- Factor infusions for hemophilia
- Port (or portacath) care and maintenance

Frequently Asked Questions
What is in-home infusion therapy?
In-home infusion therapy, or IV (intravenous) therapy, is a common treatment method for administering medications and fluids directly into a patient’s vein and is done from the comfort of the patient’s home. Home infusion therapy can be a safe and effective alternative to traditional infusion therapy in a clinic.
Who can benefit from in-home infusion therapy?
Infusion therapy can benefit those with serious or chronic diseases or infections that are not responsive to oral antibiotics. Infusion therapy is frequently used to provide antibiotics after surgery, replace fluids, and manage pain.
Do I need a doctor’s authorization?
Yes, a doctor’s order is required for any nursing intervention that the nurse will perform. Nurse assessments do not require a doctor’s authorization; however, any form of treatment—such as IV therapies—will require a doctor’s order.
What kind of supplies will I need to get started?
The medical supplies needed for in-home infusions vary, but may include: syringes, needles, IV poles and tubing, antiseptic, gauzes, and tape. It is up to the client to provide their own supplies before the start of care. If you need assistance finding supplies, we provide some recommendations here.
