Home IV Therapy
Intravenous (IV) therapy, also known as infusion therapy, involves the administration of medication and IV fluids as per the recommendation of the primary physician. Even with no other medical requirement, patients often end up staying at a clinic just to obtain IV fluids, as the flow of the fluids needs to be monitored closely.
With KEFI’s Home IV therapy, a registered nurse visits the patient’s home to set up the IV to administer fluids like saline, dextrose or antibiotics. The team coordinates all necessary arrangements for medication, supplies, and equipment needed for successful administration at home.
The timing and frequency of the nurse visit depends on the needs of the individual as prescribed by their doctors or by the Clinical team at KEFI Home Healthcare. Home IV services also include peripheral catheter insertion, Venipuncture/phlebotomy and care of central catheter lines. Depending on the recovery, patients can get back to their usual routine and in some cases, even return to work while still on therapy.
