About Mercy

Home Infusion

Your physician tells you that you can go home from the hospital as long as you can receive I.V. therapy. Which home-care agency should you call? The answer is Mercy Home Health Services. Our knowledgeable infusion-care staff follows the strictest nursing and pharmaceutical standards while treating you with the greatest respect and compassion. You’ll receive expert care at the lowest-possible cost.

Your good health is our goal. Before making a recommendation, our infusion coordinator or pharmacist can speak with your doctor to determine whether your treatment plan can be successfully accomplished in your home.

Your infusion-care staff will:

  • Thoroughly train you or your designated caregiver, with step-by-step instruction, about the use of infusion equipment and supplies
  • Be present at each infusion until you or your caregiver can properly and safely administer therapy
  • Regularly assess and monitor your response to therapy by obtaining laboratory samples ordered by your physician
  • Recommend the appropriate infusion pump for your therapy

Most home infusions involve one or more of these:

  • Antibiotics
  • Analgesia (pain control)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Nutrition
  • Hydration
  • Cardiac medication
