On many occasions, a patient may find that they require their medicine to be given through an IV directly into the bloodstream. This may be for a course of treatment, as in the case of high-powered antibiotics, or on an annual basis, such as for osteoporosis treatments that reduce the need for a daily pill regimen.
Patients obliged to receive infusion treatments may do so in a comfortable and stress-free environment.
Franklin Medical Center is also the only facility in this area with a dedicated staff for the initiation and placement of Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters, an advanced infusion method for patients with greater medical needs. Talk to your primary care provider for more information.
