Is home infusion therapy safe?
Home infusion has been proven to be a safe and effective alternative to inpatient care for many disease states and therapies. A full patient and home assessment are performed before initiating infusion therapy at home to ensure that the patient is a suitable candidate for home care.
Note: A registered infusion nurse will supervise and monitor the patient for the course of the infusion administration.
