IV Therapy

IV Therapy Staten Island, NY

Some of our residents require IV therapy, also commonly referred to as infusion therapy, to receive their necessary medications. Our skilled nursing staff is prepared to care for the needs of these residents. At Verrazano, our teams have individualized functions, but we often collaborate to ensure that a resident will have the best experience and care. The social services department, for example, works with hospitals for accurate information transfer. The members of our nursing team care for residents with a gentle touch and all the thoughtfulness they would use with their own family members.

Reasons for IV Therapy

You may remember a time when infusion therapy was only offered during a hospital stay. Unfortunately, this was often too grand a luxury for patients who could not afford extended stays in a medical facility. Thanks to modern technology, our state-of-the-art IV equipment, and an experienced staff, our facility is prepared to offer your loved one the prescription medication he or she needs with IV therapy.

For a short-term stay, a resident may rely on Verrazano during transition from the hospital to home. Alternatively, Verrazano has many long-term residents, and we help them maintain independence and good health, without having to visit outside treatment centers.

Infusion therapy can address:

  • Pain Disorders
  • Post-surgery Treatment
  • Infections
  • Heart Disease
  • Cancer
  • Impaired Eating
  • Dehydration
  • Heavy Metal Intoxication
