Anti-Infectives

Our comprehensive home infusion care model is designed to optimize outcomes for patients needing anti-infective (e.g. antibiotics, antiviral, and antifungal) therapies. We treat serious infections ranging from soft tissue, joint, and blood infections to bone, lung, heart, and brain infections.

Our team of pharmacists and nurses bring a unique set of skills to anti-infective therapy. We were trained in top ranked hospitals giving us a deep understanding of the discipline of infectious disease from diagnosis and best antimicrobial therapy, to drug level and laboratory monitoring and optimal therapeutic responses.

We collaborate with your medical team to help you transition back to your normal life.

LEARN THE DIFFERENT WAYS HOW IV MEDICATIONS ARE GIVEN AT HOME
I can’t thank the Rochester Home Infusion team enough for their incredible care during my recent illness. After dealing with home care agencies for my parents’ care and having to carefully monitor their medications, it was a pleasure to deal with seasoned professionals. Working with Joselyn, Steven, and Kris has been a wonderful experience. Their quality care, knowledge, attention to detail, patient training, and personal care was outstanding! I would highly recommend Rochester Home Infusion services.
