IV means intravenous. It is a method of giving medicines or fluids into the body through a needle or tube that goes into a vein. Anybody – young or old – may need an IV at some point but it does not mean they have to stay in healthcare facilities to receive this treatment.
As part of our Home Healthcare Services in Connecticut, we can safely administer IV treatments for your loved one at home.
While administering IV may be a common procedure, you may need further assistance to ensure safe administration and take extra caution in other areas. For example, the maintenance and upkeep of the tools used in this treatment can be assigned to your caregiver. These apparatuses must be very clean. Hygiene is important to prevent infection.
We should also pay attention to possible problem areas such as the skin or tissue on the hole where the IV is and swelling of veins. The right care provider will ensure these kinds of situations are prevented.
Kids or seniors receiving IV at home may still need some time to get used to this procedure. We understand how every patient’s case can be different. We try hard to ensure they feel comfortable and at ease with the procedure.
