You have been informed by your healthcare provider that you will need to receive intravenous (IV) infusions of a medication to treat your health condition. But what does that mean? Sometimes people are not physically able to take medications orally. In addition, some medications cannot be given orally because acids in the stomach would make them no longer effective to treat a condition.
There are many reasons why medications are administered by means other than than through the mouth. Infusion Therapy is an alternative to oral treatment where medications are administered intravenously. The Wickenburg Community Hospital Infusion Center was made possible through the generosity of Alex and Jane Boyd.
