Home Infusion

Many patients who need infusion therapy – the delivery of medication through a needle or catheter – no longer need to stay in the hospital. With Mercy Home Infusion, they can receive intravenous (IV) treatments where they are most at ease – at home.

While in the comfort of their homes, patients will often:

  • Recover faster
  • Experience fewer complications
  • Save money
  • Resume normal activities

Our pharmacists and nurses work closely with a patient’s doctor to ensure the best course of care and a smooth transition from hospital to home. We provide all the necessary medications, supplies and training.

Our nurses visit patients in their homes to teach them and their family members all they need to know. Nurses return regularly to monitor a patient’s condition and progress.

Pharmacists and nurses are a phone call away – 24 hours a day.

Conditions most commonly treated with home infusion include:

  • Infections
  • Cancer
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Chrohn’s disease
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • GI diseases
  • Pain
  • Multiple sclerosis

Specialty Medications

Mercy Specialty Pharmacy provides oral and injectable medications for patients with a variety of complicated and serious conditions. We also deliver the personalized attention, patient education and monitoring these medications require.

At Mercy Specialty Pharmacy we work individually with patients to help them manage the cost, use and side effects of these specialized medications – which are often very expensive.

In addition, we can supply supporting medications for pain or to counteract side effects, plus other treatment supplies not found at other pharmacies.

  • Personalized consultation. With access to a patient’s online medical records, our pharmacists understand a patient’s medical condition and medication history.
  • Medication education, instruction on proper use and side effect management.
  • Expertise working with insurance providers to have medications covered.
  • Reduced out-of-pocket expenses with manufacturers’ co-pay cards.
  • Financial assistance for those in need.
  • Fast and convenient service. Medications are delivered by express shipments to patients’ homes.
