IV Infusion Therapy
Your Infectious Disease Consultants Physician will develop a plan of care for you during each office visit. Should that plan include intravenous medications, you will be introduced to the nursing staff in the infusion center located within the IDC office. Should you qualify for intravenous medication treatments, the professional staff of Antibiotic Infusion Therapy will inform you of the medication actions and side effects, insertion and care of intravenous catheters, and provide education for self-administering the prescribed medications. Throughout the treatment period, you will be monitored closely by the clinical staff for therapy success through frequent office visits, assessment of personal response to the treatment, lab results, and additional diagnostic testing.
