Traditional infusion therapy or intravenous (I.V.) care was first available only
in a hospital setting. We provide a bridge of care from the hospital to home. Because
of shortened hospital stays, more and more patients are placed in a skilled nursing
facility. Nursing home residents who require I.V. therapy have potential to alternatives
other than hospitalization. The program offers services to patients discharged from
the hospital, as well as patients seen by a physician. I.V. therapy may be administered
on a regular or intermittent basis for patients who need specialized treatment for
their diagnosis, but do not require hospitalization.
