Ambulatory Infusion Services (AIS)
AIS provides infusion therapy (IV therapy). This involves the delivery of medications intravenously in a comfortable outpatient setting. AIS is designed to provide therapy to patients who may not require hospitalization.
Patients can be admitted through a primary care provider, hospital or nursing home. All patients are cared for by a clinical team of experts who monitor and follow patients closely to ensure the highest clinical outcomes and patient safety, and are provided with extensive education about their therapy regimen.
Some of the treatments available include, but are not limited to the following:
- Antibiotic infusions
- Blood and platelet transfusions
- IV hydration
- PICC line and Port-A-Cath maintenance
- Discontinue chemo pumps
- IVIG therapy
- Epogen, neupogen, xolair, reclast, prolia injections
The infusion process can take an hour or more, depending on the medication/product to be administered. During this time you can relax in one of our comfortable chairs or beds, read a book, or bring your laptop and surf the web on our Wi-Fi connection. Our team of highly skilled nurses is committed to creating the best care experience for our patients.
