Reply To: In home infusion
I started infusions recently and will soon have my second set of 5 in a row. The infusion nurse stays at the house the entire time. He seems to have a lot of paperwork to do on his laptop, and I think he may be working on further education (we don’t know him well yet) so he stays busy and just checks my BP and other vitals each hour. I had a problem one day when I started bleeding around the puncture site (my skin is thin and fragile and has trouble holding an IV in place) so I was very glad he was present.
