Home Infusion Therapy
Home infusion therapy allows a patient to receive their IV medications safely and quietly in the comfort of their own home. Studies have shown that infusion therapy patients recover more quickly and completely when treatments are performed in surroundings familiar to the patient.
We specialize in a broad range of infusion therapy services that will help patients receive the medications they need. Whether it’s TPN, Antiviral/Antifungal, Wellness/Nutrition Infusion Therapy or End-of-Life Pain Management Infusion Therapy, we can provide the infusion therapy you need.
Total Parenteral Nutrition
TPN stands for Total Parenteral Nutrition. Unlike healthy individuals who get their nutrition via their digestive tract, or the “enteral” route, some individuals may have digestive or absorption issues that prevent them from receiving their nutrition through their digestive tract. TPN therapy will help deliver the nutritients your body needs.

For many patients, antibiotic, antifungal and antiviral infusion therapies that require intravenous (IV) administration are key to their recovery from serious illness or injury or management of disease. The highly trained team of specialists at Nexgen Home Infusion are here to help you reach your immediate health goals.

Clinical pharmacists coordinate the patient’s care with a team of medical providers including the patient’s physician, the infusion nurse and registered dietitian for all prescribed therapies. Our pharmacists have specialized training and experience working with patients in the areas of nutrition, infectious diseases, and oncology and pain management.
IV Therapy Nurse
Prior to admission, a member of our nursing staff will complete a patient assessment to make certain that the patient is a suitable candidate for home infusion therapy. The infusion nurse will train the patient and caregivers one-on-one so they can independently administer infusion therapies. Our infusion nurses are available to the patient or caregiver at any time by phone should assistance be needed.
Our registered dietitian will work closely with your patient’s pharmacist, nurse, and physician to monitor the patient’s proper nutritional assessments. Professionally licensed, registered dietitians will assess, diagnose, and alter their patient’s nutritional needs based upon their medical condition and individual needs.
