What is home infusion?
Home infusion therapy helps patients reduce their hospital stay by providing care in the comfort and privacy of the patient’s own home. The Erlanger Home Infusion team works closely with the patient’s local physicians and consists of infusion pharmacists, nurses and registered dietitians trained in the specialized area of intravenous (IV) infusion therapy. Patients receive infusion therapy in their home with training and resources to meet their individual needs as well as clinical monitoring by the Erlanger Home Infusion team of pharmacists and nurses. Working closely with the physician directing the care and other medical professionals, we provide the following services.
