What is Infusion Therapy?
Typically, “infusion therapy” means that a drug is administered intravenously or through other non-oral routes, such as intramuscular injections and epidural routes.
Prescription drug therapies commonly administered via infusion include antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, hydration, pain management and parenteral nutrition. Infusion therapy is also for chronic and sometimes rare diseases.
About the Clinic
Patients receive injectable medications, intravenous (IV) medication therapy such as antibiotics, disease-specific medications, immunologic agents, as well as blood transfusions in our modern outpatient infusion clinic.
We offer patients a comfortable home-like atmosphere to relax in while they receive their infusion. Every infusion chair has a television to help pass the time during treatment.
Our nurses are trained to provide a variety of infusion services to patients. They are highly skilled in IV placement, have strong assessment skills and are extremely effective in crisis intervention. Most patients require intensive supervision and management due to the risks for infusion reactions. All of our nurses are experienced in infusion therapy.
Registered Nurses (RNs) administer non-chemotherapeutic infusions and testing according to practice guidelines.
As an outpatient facility, our nurses work delivering direct patient care and providing patient and family education.
The Infusion clinic is located on the 1st floor of Newman Regional Health, accessible from both entrance C (main entrance) and F (1201 12th St) entrance.
Hours of Care:
Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm, for the administration of injectables and/or medication infusions.
Saturday and Sunday, 8:00 am – 12:00 pm, will be reserved strictly for patients needing daily antibiotic infusions and wound care.
