Ig Home Infusion and COVID-19
During this unprecedented time, at-home treatment is an alternative option for patients who typically receive infusions at their doctor’s office or the hospital.
At-home treatment allows you to:
- Continue your treatment without risking your health and safety
- Follow social distancing efforts and stay-at-home orders
- Relieve healthcare workers and institutions currently dealing with a public health crisis
- Avoid hospitals, infusion centers, and doctor’s offices where others may be sick
Our safety protocol:
- Both nurse and patient receive medical masks and gloves for each day of infusion
- Infusion pumps sterilized before and after each use
- Staff temperatures are screened before and during shifts
- Staff adheres to strict hand-washing schedule
What is Ig?
Immune globulin is a sterilized solution made from healthy blood plasma used to treat patients with decreased or abolished antibody production capabilities
How Does it Work?
Immune globulin can be administered subcutaneously (SCIG) or intravenously (IVIG). In patients who have a decreased immune system, immune globulin (IG) can be used to provide the antibodies they need to ward off infection. In patients with autoimmune diseases, immune globulin can help regulate an overactive immune system by slowing it down or stopping processes causing inflammatory reactions.
What are the indications?
