Home Infusion Therapy

Patient with drip.

Infusion therapy is targeted administration of certain types of drugs. These “infused” drugs are added directly into the bloodstream through an IV, under the skin (subcutaneous), or near the spinal cord (epidural). Infusion therapy includes:

  • Antibiotics
  • Chemotherapy
  • Immune globulin
  • Pain management drugs
  • Nutrition therapies

Infusion therapy may be recommended if you have infections, multiple sclerosis, cancer and cancer-related pain, gastrointestinal problems that result in nutrition-related problems, congestive heart failure or immune disorders. Administering these therapies to you in the comfort and privacy of your own home is a safe and effective alternative to inpatient care.
