Infusion Pharmacy & Nursing

Our Infusion Pharmacy is a licensed pharmacy that provides intravenous (IV) medications, nutritional support, infusion pumps, supplies and comprehensive infusion therapy management to patients in their own homes. All of our patients are served by our state-of-the-art sterile compounding pharmacy. Therapies commonly provided include antibiotics, immune globulin, pain management, and enteral and parenteral nutrition.

CHAPOur Infusion Pharmacy has earned CHAP accreditation which demonstrates that Home Health United meets the industry’s highest nationally recognized standards. Learn more about CHAP accreditation.

Our pharmacists and nurses work collaboratively with the physician to ensure that the patient receives:

  • the highest quality of care
  • optimal outcomes
  • efficient enrollment and timely deliveries
  • individualized patient assessment, and their progress monitored throughout the course of treatment
  • thorough patient education and materials

Our pharmacist-to-patient ratio is low allowing for excellent monitoring of the patient.
