Infusion Services FAQs


What is Home Infusion Therapy?

Infusion therapy is when a patient receives medications directly into the body through a blood vessel, under the skin, or into a muscle, often using an IV. With today's technology, it is possible, and often preferrable, to receive many infusions in the privacy of your own home. Not only does home care help you be more comfortalbe during your treatment, but it also helps you avoid the germs and viruses often found in medical facilities and doctors' offices.


Why Would I need Infusion Therapy?

Infusion therapy is often started in the hospital or doctor's office. But, after the inital few treatments, you may be able to move to home infusion therapy.  Some common reasons for infusion therapy are:
  • cancer treatment, including chemotherapy
  • pain relief for those with chronic pain
  • treatment of a chronic medical condition, such as Crohn's Disease, multiple sclerosis, or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Dehydration or malnutrition issues
  • Long-term antibiotics or antiviral medicines
