Infusion Therapy 101
When oral medications fail, or they’re not powerful enough, your physician may recommend infusion therapy. In many cases, medications are administered via intravenous methods; however, it’s also possible to receive medication via an epidural or intramuscular injections.
Patients can receive these types of treatments from our Infusion Clinic:
- Pain management
Who needs infusion therapy?
A number of conditions can benefit from, and indeed improve, with infusion therapy, allowing patients to thrive. Your doctor may prescribe infusion treatment if you have:
- A condition that’s unresponsive to antibiotics taken orally.
- Gastrointestinal disease.
- Rheumatoid arthritis.
- Multiple sclerosis.
- Kidney disease.
The Infusion Clinic staff follows exact guidelines for ensuring that the medications administered are always kept in a sterile environment. The surrounding environment, like the positioning of comfortable chairs, is designed with patients in mind, ensuring stability and sterility at all times. Medical professionals keep accurate charts on dosages and schedules to promote optimal infusion of medications, and prevent adverse reactions and interactions with other medications. When vascular access devices like ports are used, our staff ensures they are properly and routinely flushed to ensure optimal delivery. Our staff will also monitor the delivery of medication closely, to ensure the process is safe, from start to finish.
Here’s How to Get Started
Long-term infusion therapies are costly, especially if administered as a hospital inpatient. Outpatient clinics like ours provide top-notch care under the supervision of highly trained medical professionals, all at a lower cost. The service is normally covered by insurance companies, but patients will require a doctor’s order. However, your doctor does not need to be affiliated with Trinity Hospital Twin City in order for you to receive care at our Clinic.
The Trinity Hospital Twin City Infusion Clinic is open 7 days a week. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call the clinic at (740) 922-7450, ext. 2252.
