Patients requiring anti-infective therapies to treat complex infections, short or long-term, can be managed easily in the home setting. Upon order of the physician, the Intramed Plus Team will train the patient and/or caregiver to safely administer his/her IV anti-infective therapy. The patient and/or caregiver will receive written step-by-step instructions with one-on-one training from an experienced infusion nurse. Depending upon the length of the therapy and the patient's homebound status, an additional nurse may be provided through a local home health nursing agency, who will be available for venous access care and therapy support.
Our pharmacists will provide clinical monitoring for proper drug dosing to ensure the best possible outcome of the therapy. Throughout the treatment, the patient's physician is kept abreast of lab results and is consulted with progress and possible recommendations of change.
