Minimize hospital stays and improve the quality of life for your patients in the comfort of home
Upstate HomeCare’s experienced, local clinical teams provide the right support for patients requiring anti-infective therapy. Our interdisciplinary team of pharmacists and registered nurses, in collaboration with our infusion intake specialists, work together with you to develop individualized care plans to promote positive patient outcomes.
Anti-infective therapy (antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral) is one of the most commonly prescribed home infusion therapies that can be safely managed in the home.
Infections requiring long-term anti-infective therapy can be caused by a variety of reasons:
- Catheter sepsis or line infections
- Chronic urinary tract infections (UTI)
- Cystic fibrosis (CF)
- Fungal infections
- Lyme disease
Upstate HomeCare provides easy and patient-friendly alternatives to hospitalization by offering the patient and family choice in the type of care they receive and who provides it. Our clinical liaison will assess patient appropriateness for the first dosing of anti-infective therapy, considering the risk vs benefit of initiating care in the home.
