Infusion Therapy

 

 

  

 

Infusion therapy is the administration of medications directly into the bloodstream by IV or by a tube inserted into the patient’s intestine or stomach. Some of the more common infusion therapies include chemotherapy, total parenteral nutrition (TPN), enteral nutrition, administration of antibiotics and steroids, and hydration therapy—all delivered by In-HomeCare America in the less costly, familiar comfort of your home.

Home infusion benefits you by helping to reduce and shorten hospital stays and improve quality of life. Our team of skilled nurses and pharmacists work to provide you with individualized care.  We work with your schedule, lessening the inconvenience of traveling to distant hospitals and outpatient centers.

How To Get Started

If you are a patient, the first step to beginning home health care with In-HomeCare America is requesting a referral for home healthcare from your physician or hospital discharge planner. Family members of patients who need home health care services may also request a referral.

Medical professionals can refer patients to us by phone, fax or completing the referral form located here. 


Once your referral has been received, In-HomeCare will send a registered nurse or therapist to your home for an assessment and begin the admission process.
