  1. Patients undergo a full consultation with an infectious disease physician.
  2. After a thorough physical history and exam, if patient meets criteria necessary for IV antibiotics, they are taken into the IV Infusion Suite right away (no wait time).
  3. Our expert phlebotomist will draw the patient’s blood.
  4. Our skilled nurses will take a small peripheral IV and begin the antibiotic infusion immediately.

Infusion takes roughly 30 minutes.Initial office visit will last roughly 1 hour, subsequent visits may be shorter duration.

 

What’s Next?

– IV Treatment will take place DAILY during therapy.
ONCE PER WEEK – An infectious disease physician will re-evaluate and re-examine patient, perform blood work, and decide whether patient requires continued antibiotics. This visit will be slightly longer as it involves a further 1 on 1 discussion regarding the patient’s care.

WHAT ARE THE TOP REASONS TO VISIT SOUTH SHORE INFECTIOUS DISEASE CENTER’S IV INFUSION FACILITY?

1. No wait time

Patients come in during their scheduled time, are seen in an expedited fashion, and taken right away into the IV suite. There is no urgent care/ER wait
time.

2. No interruptions or inconveniences

Hospital stays can unfortunately feature many interruptions, including bed placement and waiting in the ER (possibly for days at a time).

3. Comfortable Setting

Hospitals are generally busy, so it is difficult for a patient to receive the “comforts of home” during a hospital stay. Not to mention the lack of rest that a patient gets between having visitors (and their roommates having visitors over), between getting their vitals and phlebotomy.

We offer phlebotomy on-site!

4. Reduced risk of infection

Hospital stays generally increase a patient’s risk of developing an infection. South Shore Infectious Disease Center’s clean and modern facilities are geared towards getting a patient “in and out” with as short of a stay as possible.
