Infusion Therapy FAQs


Infusion Therapy General FAQs


Q: What is infusion therapy?

Home infusion therapy is the in-home administration of intravenous medications and nutritional supplements typically through a vein (intravenous) but the term is also applicable to subcutaneous infusions.  Home infusion therapy (HIT) is usually prescribed by your physician when a patient’s condition cannot be treated effectively with oral medications. Commonly administered therapies include antibiotics, antifungals, antivirals, parenteral nutrition (TPN), hydration, inotropes, chemotherapy, IVIG (immune globulin), pain management and specialty medications.

With training from our experienced and professional infusion registered nurses, patients and family members take an active role in their home infusion therapy plan of treatment. Patients find the convenience and comfort of being in their own home reassuring and therapeutic which can help facilitate the healing process.  Patients often return to their normal routines and in some cases attend school and return to work while on therapy.

Q: Is it safe to receive infusions at home?

Home infusion is a safe and effective alternative to hospital care. Specially trained infusion pharmacists, nurses, dietitians and additional healthcare professionals are available 24/7/365 to monitor your prescribed therapy, answer any questions and communicate with your ordering physician. Over the past 35 years, home infusion therapy has evolved with new drugs and technologies that have demonstrated positive outcomes for patients outside of a hospital inpatient setting. Increased emphasis on health care cost containment, patient’s desire to maintain independent lifestyle and advances in clinical administration of prescribed therapies has led the shift to the home or an alternate treatment setting such as an ambulatory infusion suite (AIS).

Q: What medical conditions can be treated at home on HIT (home infusion therapy)?

Preferred Homecare | LifeCare Solutions offers services and medications covering a broad range of acute and chronic conditions which includes, but is not limited to:

  • Infectious diseases
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Gastrointestinal conditions
  • Cancer
  • Primary Immune Deficiencies
  • Pre-and-post Transplant conditions
  • Cytomegalovirus (CMV)

Q: Are there age restrictions to receive my therapy in the home?

No, Preferred Homecare | LifeCare Solutions provides services to neonates, infants, children, and adults. We employ experienced pediatric, adult and geriatric clinicians that provide a high-tech/high-touch experience.

Q: What services are included in HIT?

We arrange and prepare your infusion medications, supplies, and equipment to be delivered to your home. Our patients also receive the benefit of medication compounded in a local, accredited USP 797 compliant pharmacy along with clinical pharmacist expertise and support. Our infusion clinicians work closely with your physician and other healthcare professionals in communicating your progress and needs. Education and training is provided by our skilled and compassionate infusion nurses.

Q: Will my insurance cover HIT?

Home infusion services are covered by most insurance companies and we are able to accept many commercial and government payors.  Allow our intake and reimbursement experts to assist you in determining eligibility for services.

Q: What makes your clinicians different?

Home infusion pharmacists require a high degree of expertise in the clinical management of complex therapies and patients in the home setting. To ensure proper and safe administration of infusion medications, our pharmacists are critical in providing comprehensive admission screening which includes an assessment based on patient history, lab reports, current prescribed medications (including oral ,herbal and over the counter remedies), identification of possible drug or dose interactions, current physical and mental status and caregiver/family support. Patient education regarding medication, supplies/equipment, medication storage requirements, identification and reporting of adverse drug reactions, catheter access support and management and monitoring of labs in collaboration with your physician are done on a routine basis. In addition maintenance and implementation of state, federal, and national regulations are performed on sterile infusion medications from our pharmacies.

Infusion nurses will have special training, expertise, and education related to the administration and monitoring of medications and potential complications, vascular access insertion and maintenance as well as therapy and disease education related to each individual patient. Along with the physician and pharmacists, infusion nurses are key members of the home care team. Other services provided include education/training, assessment/evaluation, safety of home environment, catheter assessment/insertion/removal and coordination of care. Many of our expert infusion nurses hold advanced certification from Intravenous Nurses Society (INS), ONS, AVA, PALS, and VACC. 

Q: How often does the nurse visit?

The infusion nurse will create a customized plan of treatment in conjunction with the physician to meet the patient’s needs. The nurse will discuss the care, frequency and follow-up at the first home visit. Based on individual needs will determine the frequency and timing of the nurse visits.

Q: What are the pharmacy hours?

Regular business hours are Monday-Friday, 8:00am-5:00 pm for routine needs. Our pharmacists and nurses are available 24 hours/day, seven days/week, 365 days/year for emergencies, changes in therapy order, new referrals and questions. Please use the phone number that was provided to you at admission to contact us.

Immunoglobulin Therapy FAQs


Q: What is IVIg?

Intravenously administered immunoglobulin (sometimes called IVIg) contains antibodies collected from the plasma of healthy donors. As a blood product IVIg is made from the plasma of thousands of carefully screened donors. Immunoglobulins (Ig) are glycoprotein molecules that function as antibodies. Plasma contains antibodies which help treat disorders of the immune system and/or by giving a boost to a weakened immune system.

Q: How does IVIg work?

It depends. When it is given to treat a general immune deficiency then it is referred to as replacement therapy meaning that the IVIg simply makes up for the person’s lack of production of a sufficient amount of antibodies. When it is given to treat an autoimmune disease, the cause and effect is different and the IVIg therapy is referred to as immune modulation. By administering the IVIg, the goal is to stop a person’s immune system from producing autoantibodies and then to bind the undesirable autoantibodies and take them out of the blood circulation.

Q: How is it administered?

IVIg may be given intravenously, directly into the veins. The dose depends on what the IVIg is being given for as well as the person’s body weight. A trained Ig nurse will come to your home to administer the medication.

If side effects are intolerable or severe, or if the veins are difficult to access so that getting an IV inserted is not possible, then the Ig may be administered subcutaneously. The subcutaneous Ig administration (SCIg) requires initial training by the registered nurse and is infused by a small needle placed into your subcutaneous tissue (i.e., on abdomen or thigh) but then the patient can be taught to self-infuse at home. Generally the medication is administered once every 1-2 weeks and may take longer to infuse.

Q: How often will I be given Ig therapy?

That’s dependent on your doctor’s orders because the frequency is often dependent on the dose that is prescribed. For general immune deficiencies, the dose ranges from 200-800 mg/kg. For autoimmune diseases, the doses are much higher, up to 2000 mg/kg. When the dose is high, the treatment is divided into smaller doses that are given over the course of up to five days, and they can be given either on consecutive days or on non-consecutive days.

IVIg is typically administered intravenously 2-5 days initially (with each dose taking 2-4 hours to infuse). The patient usually receives another single dose every 3-4 weeks, depending on the type and severity of the condition.

IVIg doses are repeated at regular intervals (monthly or every 3-4 weeks) in order to reach and maintain a clinically appropriate level. Many times this regimen is indefinite or even for a life time. In other cases, the condition is relieved and the IVIg can be discontinued. It’s important to remember that IVIg replaces antibodies the body should be making, but does not help the patient’s own immune system make more, so repeat doses are needed.

Q: What are the side effects?

Ig is very safe, and the majority of people tolerate it without problems. Most of the side effects occur because it’s administered too quickly. Because of this, it is gradually infused, starting at a very low rate and increased at intervals until the maximum rate is reached. Many times if side effects are experienced, simply reducing the rate will eliminate them. In addition, side effects usually go away as the body adjusts to the Ig. Other more severe reactions are taken care of by careful prescreening and choosing the appropriate brand of Ig.

Infusion-related side effects include: Headache, fever, fatigue, chills, flushing, dizziness, urticaria, chest tightness, nausea/vomiting, muscle cramping, blood pressure changes.

More severe side effects although rare include: Anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction), aseptic meningitis syndrome (severe headache that resolves when the Ig is stopped), thrombotic event (a blood clot forms because the Ig may be slightly thicker than blood), renal failure (a potential problem for people with underlying kidney disease or diabetes).

Q: What is Immune globulin (Ig) used for?

There are several FDA-approved or labeled uses of Ig. They include: Primary Immune Deficiencies (PIDs), Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, Children with HIV, Allogenic Bone Marrow Transplants, Kawasaki Syndrome, and Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura.

There are even more diseases and disorders that are considered standard treatment that are not FDA-approved, also called off-label use. The majority of these are autoimmune diseases and disorders.

Q: Are all Ig products the same?

There are a variety of brands of IG available in the United States currently. All are >95% IgG, the main serum protein that contains protective antibodies. They are all clinically comparable; however they do differ from each other in terms of strength, sugar, albumin, sodium, and antibody content. Your physician and pharmacist will help you determine which brand is best for you.

Q: How will your company help me with this therapy?

Inotrope Therapy FAQs


Q: What is Inotrope Therapy?

Inotrope therapy is used in patients with heart failure to increase the strength of the heart muscle. It helps make the heart pumping action stronger and relaxes constricted blood vessels. This medication is used to treat end stage heart failure and is also used as a bridge to transplant. The medication can improve your quality of life and allows you to participate in your normal activities for daily living where possible. The first dose of medication is never administered in the home it is administered in the hospital initially, this allows for close monitoring while the medication is titrated (adjusted) to the right dose for you.

Q: How is Inotrope therapy administered?

An ambulatory infusion pump is used to administer the medication as a continuous infusion into a vein. You will need a central line (CVC or PICC) for home infusions. Less commonly ordered is “pulse therapy” which infuses the Inotrope medication over 24 to 48 hours a few times per week. Patients receiving continuous infusions will have a pre-programmed back up pump in the home. Our nurse will meet you in the hospital and connect you to the ambulatory infusion pump and medication to prevent any interruption in therapy.

We have an expert clinical team. Your infusion pharmacist and nurse work together to monitor your tolerance and progress with assessments and lab results. You will be assessed daily for the first week and then weekly and as needed. The nurse will educate you and your caregiver about the medication, side effects, management of the pump and troubleshooting measures and techniques. You will need a reliable caregiver and access to a phone throughout your therapy. You are also an integral part of the team, it is important to understand all instructions that are given, which include nutrition recommendations, medication instructions, and potential side effects, and the importance of monitoring your vital signs and weight. (When weighing yourself your weight is most accurate in the morning after your first void and before eating)

Q: What side effects can occur?

Side effects can occur with inotropic therapy.

  • The following side effects may occur but go away with time: headache, increased heart rate, high blood pressure, light headedness, dizziness, faintness, nausea, vomiting, or rash. Notify your doctor if they any of these side effects persist. 
  • Check with your doctor or health care team immediately if you experience shortness of breath, chest pain, heart palpitations (irregular heartbeat), or fever greater than 101⁰F (38.3⁰C).

Q: Why did my doctor tell me I have to have “regular” infusions?

Inotrope medications are intravenous cardiac medications. It is important to maintain a steady rate of infusion to keep your heart muscle strong. Any interruption in therapy will may lead to re-hospitalization. The goal is to prevent re-admission to the hospital. Our pharmacy will also provide you with two ambulatory pumps in the home as well as a backup bag/cassette of inotrope medication.

Q: Can I take other medications with Inotrope therapy?

Yes, most patients are on other disease state specific medications at the same time with Inotrope therapy. Make sure your physician knows what medications you are taking, including any over the counter or home remedy medications. You should avoid the use of NSAIDS, ephedrine products, licorice, ginseng and Chinese herbs while receiving inotrope therapy.

Q: What are the inotrope medications I may be on at home?

Milrinone or Dobutamine are the two medications usually infused in the home setting. Your physician will examine your health history and tolerance; then identify the best medication for you.

Q: What are the uses of Inotrope Therapy?

Inotrope therapy is used to treat the following conditions:

  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Heart Failure
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Bridge to heart transplant or VAD
  • COPD
  • Hypotension
  • Transplant Rejections
  • Palliative

Q: Will Inotrope therapy be covered by my insurance?

Inotrope therapy is covered by most insurance companies and we are able to accept many commercial and government payors. Our intake and reimbursement experts will assist you in determining your eligibility for coverage.

Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) Therapy FAQs


Q: What is TPN therapy?

When we eat, our body breaks down the food through digestion into small nutritional elements such as proteins, carbohydrates, fat, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals. These elements are then absorbed into our blood so they can be used. If an illness or an obstruction occurs and we cannot digest food normally, these nutritional elements can be obtained by directly infusing a home TPN solution into the blood stream (intravenous) via a central line catheter. The home TPN solution contains essential nutrients such as glucose, lipids, amino acids as well as vitamins and dietary minerals. 

Q: How is TPN therapy given?

TPN is given through an intravenous catheter such as a tunneled central line placed in a large vein in the chest. If needed, this type of catheter can stay in place for an extended period of time. Proper care of the catheter is required to avoid or decrease the risk for infection, clotting, and removal.  TPN requires the use of an electronic infusion pump to regulate the flow of the TPN solution into the bloodstream.  TPN at home is usually administered over a 10 to 14 hour period during sleep. Administration for infants and young children may be even longer or as a continuous infusion.

Q: Does TPN therapy provide all of the nutrition I need?

Yes. TPN provides all the nutrients you need to maintain your health.

Q: Will I be able to move around while I am on TPN therapy?

Yes, you will be given a portable pump and a back pack so you can go anywhere even while you are infusing. Many people work or attend school during the day and infuse TPN at night.

Q: Will I need help setting up my TPN therapy every day?

Most patients are able to set up their own daily TPN infusion while others rely on a caregiver to help. Initially, our nurses will come to your home and teach you and your family or caregiver, how to set up the TPN infusion therapy. The nurse will go over everything in detail and make sure you or your caregiver is able to set up your TPN infusion. We will work with you or your caregiver until you are completely comfortable and confident that you can administer your TPN therapy on your own. In addition, our clinical team is available 24/7/365 to help with any questions you may have.

Our goal is to help you become independent and resume as much of your normal daily activities as possible.

Q: Can I still exercise or go swimming?

Most patients are able to return to their normal exercise routine; however, check with your physician before you start or resume an exercise program and avoid “contact” sports. You will likely need to gradually increase your exercise activity.

Swimming is not known to cause a central line catheter infection but you will want to check with your physician and infusion nurse beforehand. In addition, the catheter site must be well healed.

Q: What are the side effects of TPN therapy?

There are several side effects of TPN therapy, including, but not limited to, an imbalance in blood sugar, fats and electrolytes; dislodged catheter; clots around the catheter; or a more serious infection called sepsis.  Your lab tests will be monitored by your physician and our pharmacists closely to help identify any signs and symptoms of complications.  It is very important that you notify your physician if any side effects become severe or persist. 

Q: How do I store my TPN?

TPN should be stored in the refrigerator and generally patients receive a 7-day supply. Before infusing, remove TPN bag from the refrigerator at least 5-6 hours before your dose time.  Always keep your TPN bag on a clean and dry surface and keep away from children and pets.  

Q: What support does Preferred Homecare | LifeCare Solutions offer to assist me with TPN therapy?

Preferred Homecare | LifeCare Solutions is committed to providing you high-tech/high-touch clinical care to help ensure your safety and well-being.  Our nurses and pharmacists are on call 24/7/365 to answer your questions and address any issues.

Our reimbursement and intake staff will also handle every aspect of insurance verification, coverage eligibility, and the authorization process to optimize your insurance benefits for TPN therapy.

Anti-infectives Therapy FAQs


Q: What are anti-infectives?

Anti-infectives are medications used to treat infections or diseases caused by bacteria, viruses or fungus and include antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals. The anti-infective either kills or inhibits the growth of microorganisms and are used to treat a range of infections caused by bacteria and viruses, including osteomyelitis, endocarditis, urinary tract infections, skin infections, infected wounds, and coccidiomycosis.

Q: How are anti-infectives administered?

Anti-infectives are sometimes taken orally; however, if the infection is resistant to the oral medications, then your physician may prescribe a stronger anti-infective agent that is administered intravenously (IV) through a catheter into your vein. Oral medications must pass through the digestive system; to have the same efficacy as IV medications oral antibiotics must have a high “bioavailability” (the percentage of the drug that reaches the blood). Drugs administered intravenously have, by definition, 100% bioavailability. Direct medication administration into the blood stream allows for rapid tissue penetration, controllable medication levels, and fast acting results.

Q: What are the side effects of anti-infectives?

All medications have side effects; however, the side effects are of varying degrees and differ based on the drug and your body. Most side effects of anti-infectives are not serious. Common side-effects include: rashes, soft stools, diarrhea, nausea, and fever. Our pharmacists and nurses are available for any questions or concerns related to side effect identification and management.
Always consult your doctor if your side effects persist or become severe.

Q: What are the advantages of in-home anti-infective therapy?

Home IV anti-infective therapy allows you to receive the medication you need in the comfort of your home thus avoiding unnecessary hospitalization. Outpatient anti-infective therapy offers markedly reduced hospital stays and is more cost-effective. Patients are able to be mobile while receiving their home IV antibiotic therapy treatments. Patients and family members are instructed on infusion techniques and procedures from one of our high-tech/high-touch registered nurses to facilitate independence and minimize interference in normal daily activities. Patient outcomes are very favorable for anti-infective therapy at home.

Q: What delivery system will be used?

The medication will be delivered by different methods based on several factors; the stability of the medication, whether it must be rate controlled, and the volume of fluid it needs to be given in. Therapy can be given simply as an IV Push, via gravity mini-bags, on a pole mounted pump, an ambulatory infusion pump, or in an elastomeric device.

Q: Who will monitor me while receiving this therapy in my home?

Clinical support will be provided by the Preferred Homecare | LifeCare Solutions team. Direct delivery of the medication and supplies will be provided on your schedule. The infusion Pharmacist will work closely with your homecare nurse and physician to make sure your care and treatment goals are met. The infusion nurse will manage your IV line and will provide you and your family with education and support to make sure you are at ease with your IV therapy at home.

Pain Management Therapy FAQs


Q: What is pain?

Perception and tolerance of pain vary widely between people and is difficult to define and describe. Your brain interprets “signals” sent through your nerve pathways that alert you to the fact you have pain. The way your brain interprets these signals as “pain” can be affected by many outside factors, some of which can be controlled by special techniques.

Acute pain is of short duration, usually the result of an injury, surgery or illness. This type of pain includes injuries, post-operative pain and post-trauma pain.
Chronic pain is an ongoing condition from specific disease states, such as osteoarthritis, neuropathic pain (nerve injury pain), musculoskeletal pain, spasms, and pain related to illness.

Q: What Is Pain Management?

Pain management is the general term that describes the administration of specific types of medications used to relieve and treat acute or chronic pain. Your physician will determine the best treatment option for you based on your diagnosis and symptoms. We have an expert team of clinicians who will manage your care in the home if your physician determines that you would benefit from advanced pain management. The goal is to relieve suffering and improve your quality of life.

Q: How is pain medication administered?

The medications may be infused through an intravenous line, epidural line, implanted pump in the intrathecal space, or subcutaneous infusions. We utilize ambulatory infusion pumps for subcutaneous, intravenous, or epidural infusions. We have expert clinicians who refill the implanted pumps. Occasionally, patients may also receive pain medication by injection into the muscle or subcutaneous tissue.

Q: What are the side effects of pain management?

The most common side effects include sleepiness and constipation. People who are very sensitive to these types of medications may also experience itching, nausea, dizziness, hallucinations or changes in memory and thinking. Alcohol, sedatives and even allergy medications make these symptoms worse. Anyone who needs pain medication should never drink alcohol or use similar medications without their physician’s knowledge.

Q: Will I become addicted to my pain medications?

Talk to your pharmacist and physician about your concerns. Take your medications as prescribed. It is helpful to make a pain journal to track your symptoms and document the time you take your pain medication. This helps you to keep track of when your next dose is due.

Q: Can I take other medications with pain medications?

Yes; most patients are on other medications. Make sure your physician knows what medications you are taking, including any over the counter or home remedy medications.

Q: What can I expect during treatment?

We have expert pharmacy and nurse clinicians who work as a team to monitor your symptoms, assess your progress, and communicate to your physician to obtain positive treatment outcomes. We also have pharmacy and nurse clinicians specially trained in the refill of implanted Intrathecal pump utilizing current technology and protocols.

Transplant Services FAQs


Q: What special preparations will I need to undergo before the transplant?

 You will need to have a central venous catheter, which stays in place throughout the transplant process, to provide access to major veins for receiving chemotherapy, antibiotics, intravenous nutrition, and specialty medications as needed. The catheter may also be used for blood lab draws. The catheter is usually inserted into the chest and left in place for several weeks to months following the transplant. We can help support and provide all of the needed intravenous and injectable medications while at home which would include care of your central line and reinforcement of your transplant team instructions.

Q: What is HLA typing?

 Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing uses laboratory tests to look for specific antigens found on the surface of human white blood cells. These antigens are known as the HLA Class I and Class II antigens and are used to help determine the extent for which a donor and recipient are matched. Together, your HLA proteins, or markers, make up your HLA type. We currently know of more than 2,500 different HLA markers.

Q: What are the requirements for a caregiver?

 A transplant patient will require a primary caregiver, who can be a family member or friend.  You will need a caregiver  24 hours a day after your discharge from the transplant unit when you return home. Some patients choose several caregivers to share responsibilities. Our nursing and pharmacy staff is available 24/7/365 for any emergent issues and questions you or your caregiver may have.

Q: What is graft-versus-host disease?

 A unique complication for allogeneic transplants (stem cells from a related or unrelated donor) is graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Acute GVHD occurs soon after the transplant, when growing donor stem cells recognize the recipient as foreign and begin attacking the patient’s own cells, often resulting in a rash, diarrhea or hepatitis. Risk is dependent upon the degree of matching between the patient and donor, the age and gender of both the patient and donor and conditioning regimens. For serious GVHD, additional medications may be given to treat and control the complications.

Q: What do I watch for related to rejection?

Your transplant care team will work towards successful transplant outcomes but even years later rejection can occur. You know your body best so it will be important to notify your transplant team if you experience a fever over 100F, flu-like symptoms, tiredness, shortness of breath, blue nail beds, change in heart rate or weight change.  In addition,  irritability in children and a general feeling of unwell in adults are also signs to watch for

 If rejection is detected, it may require adjustment of medications or other therapies.  When detected early, most rejection episodes can be resolved successfully.

Q: What are all the different medications for?

Anti-rejection and/or Immunosuppressants are drugs and agents which shut down your body’s natural immune responses that would damage or reject your new organ. It is important to take the anti-rejection medications consistently and not to miss any doses.

Antibiotics, Antivirals and Antifungals are drugs that fend off infection because your natural immune responses are now disabled.

Antihypertensives are medications for high blood pressure. Rise from seated or lying position slowly and with caution when on an antihypertensives.

Cholesterol lowering medications decrease the level of fats and cholesterol in the blood. Do not take on an empty stomach, take with food.

Anti-ulcer medications  treat gastrointestinal side effects.

Diuretics  help with kidney problems and high blood pressure.

Stool Softeners prevent and treat constipation. Maintain adequate fluid and fiber intake before and after your transplant.

Vitamins, Minerals and Nutritional Supplements are compounds to aid your body in its efforts to heal and maintain proper functioning. This may include TPN or enteral nutrition for a short timeframe to get through the transplant procedure and healing process.

Q: What precautions will I need to take once I have undergone a transplant?

 After the transplant, you will be required to follow special guidelines given to you by your transplant team to decrease your risk of infection and other complications which include: 

  • Following a special diet
  • Washing all fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating them to reduce the risk from a harmful virus (toxoplasmosis).
  • Avoiding alcohol and smoking.
  • Exercising regularly.  However; it is important to avoid strenuous lifting for at least 4-6 weeks after your transplant.  Discuss with your transplant physician before you resume an exercise program.
  • Minimizing contact with others and avoiding crowds with potential sources of infection.
  • Avoiding plants, exotic animals and sick pets.
  • Delaying return to work or school until permitted by your transplant physician.
  • Avoiding sun exposure if you had an allogeneic transplant and always use sunscreen.

Q: How soon can I return to work/school?

The appropriate time for you to return to work will depend on at least two factors: how you are feeling after surgery and what type of work you will be doing. As soon as your incision is healed and you are feeling well, you can discuss with your transplant physician a return to work or school timeframe. Some patients are able to return to work and school relatively quickly. Generally, most recipients can return to work or school within six months following surgery.

Q: How will your company help me with this therapy?

At Preferred Homecare | LifeCare Solutions we are committed to providing you and your physician with the clinical quality of care that will ensure your safety and well-being and generate the best possible outcomes.  Our nurses and pharmacists are on call 24/7 to answer your questions and address any issues.
