Saginaw, MI, July 1, 2014 — Beginning July 1, 2014, Reverence Home Health & Hospice will provide infusion services for patients in the comfort of their own home. This new in-home treatment option is available for all persons needing infusion services within the greater Saginaw and Tuscola county region.
Among the services included are pharmaceutical and nutritional support along with infusion administration and enteral nutrition. The Pharmacokinetic dosing, monitoring and supervision of the compounding of all pharmaceuticals is done by certified, registered pharmacists. Registered nurses work with caregivers and physicians to make a plan of care tailored specifically to the patient, and monitor and assess their progress through therapy. Reverence Home Health & Hospice’s pharmacy is accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP). Home infusion services are usually covered by Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross, HMO’s and most private insurances.
Some of the therapies provided by Reverence Home Health & Hospice infusion services include pain management, catheter care management, hydration management and electrolyte replacement. They also offer a variety of patient support services include pre-discharge assessment, lab monitoring, regular monitoring of patient progress and needs, drug information and education and 24-hour on-call service, to name a few.
Reverence Home Health & Hospice offers their Home Infusion Services from two licensed pharmacies: Clinton Township pharmacy, which serves patients within the St. John Providence health system, and the Grand Blanc pharmacy which serves the patients of the Genesys Health System and now St. Mary’s of Michigan.
