Outpatient Infusion Clinic:
The OP Infusion Clinic is a service that allows patients to have procedures and therapies, whether one-time or ongoing, as an outpatient. This is cost effective for the patient, improves flow through the ED, and can shorten inpatient hospital admission.
Services that can be provided in OP Infusion include, but may not be limited to,
-IV therapy, such as antibiotics
-IV pus, IM, or Subcataneous medication administration
-Administration of blood and blood products
-Lab draw from Implanted Port
-Routine flush of Implanted Ports, Central Lines, PICC Lines
-Urinary catheterization or catheter change
-Suture or Staple Removal
- Drain Removal
-PICC Line Insertions
We can Assist with:
A written physician order with diagnosis is required. The OP Infusion Clinic is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and by appointment. Patients who have daily IV therapy will have appointments made for Saturday and Sunday.
Notification by provider office when sending patient to OP Infusion is preferred prior to patient arrival. This assists us with scheduling as the Clinic can only accommodate two patients at one time. Since many patients stay for one to two hours or longer, appointments can prevent wait time for patients.
However, walk-in patients are accepted with physician orders during the OP Infusion Clinic hours of operation.
