Home IVs are a way to receive the intravenous treatment prescribed by your doctor without having to go to a hospital or clinic. Administering IVs at home is a safe and effective alternative to hospital care.
Types of home IVs
Through IVs we can administer medicines, blood derivatives, artificial nutrition products, glucose solutions ('serums') and electrolyte solutions (containing various minerals).
Perfusion comes in many forms:
IVs for the administration of medicines
IVs to hydrate and mineralize the body
IVs for protein supplementation
IVs for feeding, etc.
How such a service is carried out
1. The nurse will come to your home on the appointed day and time.
If the visit is for a loved one, you will be notified of the start of the visit in real time in the app.
2. Please show him the prescription and the medication needed for the IV.
We will ask you to buy everything in the recipe and have them ready.
3. The nurse will set up the IV and start administering it.
He will be with you throughout the IV, making sure everything goes smoothly.
4. At the end of the IV, the nurse will collect all the consumables (needles/sticks, cotton wool, etc.) and take them with her in special containers. You will also receive notification of the completion of the visit.
Your house will be as tidy as when you started your visit.

The Care Hub's partners are certified and experienced nurses, whom we would welcome into our home.
Because the safety of you and your loved ones is paramount, we interview each nurse (2 of our colleagues attend the interview), ask for and verify medical clearance, certificate of behavioral integrity, licensure and (if needed) references.
Many of our partners are recently retired or close to retirement age because we believe they have a wealth of life experience, great patience and respect for the people they care for, and a natural desire to care for others. But we also work with people of other ages who are looking for flexible work and are also kind, respectful and empathetic.
Intravenous administration of medicines is a fast and effective way to get medicines into your bloodstream. If your doctor has prescribed it for you, he or she will probably explain the purpose and process of treatment. But if you have any questions, don't forget to ask.
Your questions may include:
- How long will I have to take the intravenous treatment?
- Am I at high risk of side effects?
- Can I receive my intravenous medication at home? Can I do my own IVs?
