Home Administration of Drugs
Alcura can provide infusions and injections, if and as requested by your healthcare provider.
Infusions are normally given gradually through a blood vessel (intravenously). Injections are delivered in a single go as and when needed. The route of injection will depend on the nature of the product.
Infusion and injection therapies
All products are prepared to the specific instructions of the hospital specialists who are overseeing your care. We can provide a wide range of injectable products to treat patients of all ages across a broad spectrum of conditions. These medicines include antibiotic infusions, chemotherapy products, immunoglobulins and home nutrition support (parenteral nutrition).
High-quality clinical care
If requested by your healthcare provider, we can support you with trained nurses who will visit your home to carefully set up, monitor and administer your injections and infusions. This will be done with the same high levels of clinical care you would get at a hospital. Our main concerns are your safety, convenience and comfort.
If you need to administer your own injections, then our trained nurses will give you one-to-one patient training. This involves teaching you how to self-inject through the use of safe, correct, clinical techniques.
High Technology Care
Our trained and experienced nurses can care for you in your home if you need high-technology care such as intravenous drug therapy, chemotherapy, or IV feeds. Our nurses work as a team with your healthcare provider to support you with the best care possible to keep you out of the hospital.
