IV Therapy

One of the skilled services offered by Diamond Home Health Care is IV Therapy. This service is provided by a registered nurse who is certified to provide IV Therapy to patients in their homes.

Our agency will coordinate with your primary physician for medications and IV equipment that will be used in your home. IV Therapy includes:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Intravenous (IV) medications
  • Antibiotic therapy
  • Blood transfusions
  • Gamma globulin and iron infusions
  • Hydration (Dextrose)
  • Electrolyte Therapy
  • IV Line management for lines such as:
    • Port-A-Cath lines
    • Subclavian-Jugular lines
    • Hickman lines
    • PICC (Peripherally-inserted Central Catheter) lines
    • Midline Catheter lines

Receiving IV Therapy in your home can be less costly compared to those provided in an institutional care facility such as a hospital. It also gives you the lifestyle flexibility that institutionalized care cannot give. At home, you have more control of your care options and the care provider who administers it.
