Infusion Therapy at Axelrod Pavilion
Medical care doesn't have to bring life to a halt. Patients at the Outpatient Infusion Services Department at Axelrod Pavilion at Morton Plant Hospital receive treatment and still take part in most of their daily activities. We are committed to offering the best care experience for our patients by helping them take charge of their treatment and simultaneously maintaining their quality of life.
What Is Infusion Therapy?
Intravenous medication administration or intravenous fluid therapy may be required following a patient hospital stay or as a prolonged treatment of a chronic condition such as cancer, hemophilia, heart disease, nutritional defects and neuropathies. That's when a specialty infusion therapy provider, such as the Infusion Department at Axelrod Pavilion, steps in to continue care. The Morton Plant Mease Pharmacy mixes the compound requested by the physician. A registered nurse specializing in vascular access and intravenous therapy then administers the IV to the patient.
