Transplant Therapy

TRANSPLANT THERAPY SUPPORT

Our comprehensive home infusion care model is designed to optimize outcomes for patients needing intravenous therapies before and/or after receiving a transplant. We support IV therapies needed by patients receiving solid-organ transplants as well as autologous stem-cell and allogenic bone marrow transplants. We understand the unique balance of preventing transplant rejection, managing medication side effects, and the risks of immunosuppression in fighting opportunistic infection. Our clinical pharmacists are experts in monitoring IV therapies and our clinical nurses are highly skilled in teaching IV care and caring for transplant infusion patients. We have a clinician on-call 24/7, and we can connect with your physician 24/7 to assist us with areas of medical concerns. Our collaborative care model with your transplant team optimizes for the best possible outcome and experience.

AVOIDING HOSPITAL ACQUIRED INFECTIONS

Home infusion minimizes exposure to health-care associated infection (HAI), a major risk for many transplant patients. The Center for Disease Control deems HAI as a major threat to patient safety. CDC’s HAI Prevalence survey in 2011 estimated 722,000 HAIs in U.S. acute care hospitals. Additionally, about 75,000 patients with HAIs died during their hospitalizations.
